Bolton lobbies against Dubya administration on North Korea deal

John Bolton continues to show a lot of courage in his opposition to the Bush administration for how they're just talking to North Korea about making a superficial agreement to stop the nuclear program (Hat tip: Hot Air Headlines):
Forty-two members attended the joint meeting where Bolton reiterated his longstanding position that trusting North Korea to abide by its promises is the wrong approach, according to a GOP aide who attended. He also spoke about North Korea's role in Syria's nuclear ambitions and encouraged members to review controversial testimony he gave to the Foreign Affairs Committee in September 2003 that figured into his contentious Senate confirmation battle.


Since leaving the State Department late last year after Democrats won control of both houses of Congress, Bolton has publicly rebuked the Bush administration on the North Korean agreement, arguing that it is making a huge mistake by trusting Pyongyang to fulfill its promises.

He is particularly critical of Bush in his new book, Surrender is Not an Option, which will hit bookshelves in early November. In the book, Bolton argues Bush has caved to State Department pressure and has changed his once strong stance on North Korea.


Bolton also insists that the State Department is in desperate need of a “cultural revolution,” and takes senior administration officials, particularly Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to task for what he regards as their unwillingness to fix a broken, bloated bureaucracy.
Right on, Bolton! You just hit the ball out of the park! Once again, nominate Bolton for a prominent position in which he can fix things in the next election!
