I liked it better when we didn't have a strategy.

Among the Middle East "experts" summoned to the official White House dorm room bull session on what to do about these ISIS people that are f%$#ing up the president's poll numbers was Zbigniew Brzezinski. Bear in mind that the last time Zbig was allowed anywhere near official Middle East policy, the result was Ayatollah Khomeini,

I'd be worried he'd try to dump sand in the gears in order to make the Carter administration look less feckless in retrospect, but the current White House is handling that chore just dandily without outside help.

Who ever thought that, almost thirty-five years to the day later, we'd be pining for the mature, sober leadership and steely-eyed resolve of this guy?
