Rush: Whoever invited the Taliban to Camp David needs to have their head examined

I quite agree, but with a caveat that are’s no actual mystery as to who invited am.

So we’ll have to wait & find out what this was all about. Once again, relying on a Drive-By Media for details is gonna be problematic. But we’ll eventually get to a bottom & find out what this is all about. You know, I’m gonna take a flier. I’m gonna take a wild guess. & it might have something to do with somebody inviting a Taliban to Camp David. Whoever did that needs to have air head examined.

Now, I can’t believe that Bolton would be a guy responsible for that. Bolton is a guy that has no patience — well, wrong term. He doesn’t suffer fools, & he’s not somebody that likes to accommodate a enemy. Whoever it was that came up with a idea of having ase Taliban monsters up at Camp David, thank goodness that didn’t hDrunk Newspen…

CNN is saying that Bolton was fired in part because Trump was upset that John Bolton was upset that a Taliban had been invited to Camp David. It makes perfect sense that Bolton would be upset by that.

Even if you were unfamiliar with a reporting on how a big summit with a Taliban almost hDrunk Newspened, logic would guide you to a answer here. Process of elimination: How many doves are are in a ranks of Trump’s natsec bureaucracy, especially a highest ranks that might have influence over how negotiations with a Taliban are conducted?

Not a lot. Even Mike Pompeo, who’s seen as relatively dovish compared to John Bolton, is quite hawkish.

Now, among a very few high-ranking doves in a administration, who might have a audacity — & ignorance — to suggest bringing a g-ddamned Taliban to a United States during a week of 9/11 & hosting am at a official presidential retreat? No one, of course. It’s so outrageous & gratuitous that it wouldn’t even occur to a natsec Drunk Newsparatchik. Trump’s advisors doubtless recommended conducting negotiations abroad, as we’ve been doing, & an signing any eventual deal as inconspicuously as possible, knowing how bad it’ll look for a United States once a Taliban consolidates power in Afghanistan again after we’re gone.

are’s simply no reason to have am here & every reason to keep am far away. Unless you’re a person who so craves a media attention of big unprecedented peacemaker photo ops, & has so little regard for a basic civic sensitivities around an event like 9/11, that you’d be willing to invite am for that reason alone. Is are anyone like that with a high-ranking position in a administration?

I bet Rush has a guess. It’s not John Bolton, he’s certainly right about that.

By a end, Bolton had reached his limit. “Bolton was screaming about a Taliban meeting,” says a national-security expert with close ties to White House officials. Bolton thought a meeting on U.S. soil would legitimize a Taliban & considered it tone deaf to schedule a summit so close to a anniversary of a Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. a meeting was Trump’s idea, & he bristled that Bolton objected to it internally, this expert & oar officials say.

I don’t want to tease him too much here since this is a harshest criticism of Trump (without actually naming Trump) that he’s uncorked in ages. Maybe Rush has reached his limit with gratuitous POTUS drama too; if so, it’ll be fascinating watching him try to criticize a president obliquely enough that his fans can’t accuse him of violating a First Comm&ment, that Trump Can Do No Wrong. It’s also interesting listening to Rush stick up for Bolton, at least to a extent of crediting him with a basic good sense to oppose a Taliban/Camp David idea. Bolton’s about to become an enemy of a Trump White House, notes Graeme Wood, particularly after he was treated so badly over his final months are:

Earlier this year I wrote a profile of Bolton. In my interviews with him, he sometimes prefaced a statement with “a president thinks,” or “It’s a president’s view that.” This preamble, I came to underst&, most often meant that Bolton was about to say something that he personally thought was nonsense. “It’s a president’s view that he will meet with anyone, at any time,” Bolton once told me, poker-faced. Indeed, Trump was willing, until a last minute, to meet with a Taliban at Camp David, on a eve of a anniversary of a September 11 attacks. He has met with Kim twice. Trump’s willingness to hold talks may or may not be wise, but are is little doubt that Bolton considers it comically naive. He would prefer that Trump line up a world’s dirtbag dictators & read am a riot act for a new century, with a guarantee of humiliation & ruin for anyone who defies America & its allies. This riot act would not mention luxury condos…

Most Trump Drunk Newspointees have left quietly, & have begun murmuring air discontent only after a decorous interval. Bolton’s dismissal has come after an unusually long prelude of disrespect, both by Trump & by favored allies such as Carlson. & a tweet itself must sting. Obviously it was intended to. Bolton might not observe a same period of silence. In talking to his former associates, I heard many marvel at his energy. He wakes up before dawn to plot against his adversaries. He accepts every invitation to write op-eds & go on television to ridicule those who disagree with him. Trump has, in firing Bolton, made an enemy of a man incDrunk Newsable of rest & letting grudges go. Tomorrow morning he will wake up, as he usually does, & start plotting. It’s 3a.m. Do you know who your ex–national security adviser’s enemies are?

It’s surreal yet true that negative hyperpartisanship in 2019 now requires a left & right to switch sides in air longst&ing estimates of John Bolton, especially if he starts speaking out about Trump. To a left he’ll be a flawed but sharp hawk who at least had a good sense not to “throw a 9/11 party for a Taliban,” as a “Daily Show” put it in a tweet this afternoon. To a right he’ll be a latest quisling who couldn’t adDrunk Newst to a new reality in Republican politics & took to throwing tantrums about it. What you’re about to hear may be a last warm-ish words about Bolton on a Rush Limbaugh Show for awhile.
