Partially channelled, perhaps, since Susan Rice is NO John Bolton! As Investor's Business Daily recently asked (and answered): “Does anyone know who Ambassador Susan Rice is?

Today our foreign policy can be summed up by the “Kick Me” sign on our backs.

The Syrian opposition can be forgiven if it asks where the U.S. was when it really needed the help. Now that the opposition is getting arms from others, and has taken the... more here
"Let me be very clear: The policy of strategic patience has ended. ... All options are on the table. If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level we believe requires action, that option is on the table."
