When We Don’t Learn From Our Mistakes…

... we tend to repeat them. Last night, President Obama told the American people that we learned nothing from the Cheney-Bush-Rumsfeld-Rice-Powell debacle that was our last invasion of Iraq. Somehow, this administration learned nothing from its predecessors. One lesson they should have learned is that you can't bomb your way to peace. It's just plain impossible.

Stephen Miles, Advocacy Director at Win Without War joined me on the show this morning with response to last night's address. Before the speech began, [...]

Benghazi Tourette’s

If you happened upon a "news" program on TV this weekend, you likely noticed the latest affliction affecting Beltway Republicans.  They've all come down with an odd strain of Tourette's Syndrome in which the verbal tic is "Benghazi".  The neuropsychiatric disorder  appears to have infected only the GOP brains that were already a bit off to begin with, but it's spread with such ferocity that containment at this point seems unlikely... that is, until the next overblown nontroversy arises. We'll get to Nicole Belle's take on what went down on our TV sets yesterday in just a moment... But first... [...]
