Biden on Bolton
During the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing last week to review the nomination of John Bolton for U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Senator Joe Biden compared sending Bolton to the U.N. to sending a "bull into a china shop". Directed to Bolton Biden said, "your judgment about how to deal with the emerging threats have not been particularly useful."
A member of the Project for the New American Century, Bolton was also one of the signers of the January 26, 1998 PNAC Letter sent to President Clinton urging him to remove Saddam Hussein from power using US diplomatic, political and military power.
