President Rudy

Yesterday Josh Marshall called Giuliani’s foreign policy advisers “the bottom of the GWOT Islamofascism nutbasket”. If you are wondering who those people might be, here’s a short list:

  • Norman Podhoretz, godfather of neoconservatism and author of “World War IV, The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism”
  • Daniel Pipes, longtime political activist; described by RightWeb as “an outspoken promoter of the “Islamofascism threat” theory; closely aligned with many high-profile neoconservatives”
  • Michael Rubin, understudy to Douglas Feith at the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans, the group that pedaled phony intelligence and war hype in the lead up to the Iraq War;

List courtesy of yesterday’s TPMtv. All of them, of course, are pounding the war drum to invade Iran.

The image I have in my mind is another complete foreign policy nitwit who has, somehow, risen magically in the GOP. The neocon vultures are circling overhead. Scary.

  1. Seriously, America would OBVIOUSLY be safer if we just invaded everywhere on earth. Just in case, you know.
