The Week Ahead
The nomination of John Bolton goes before the senate on Monday. The Washington Note is your one-stop shopping for trying to stop this one man diplomatic incident. This one is about saving American lives. Every diplomatic relationship that John Bolton screws up is going to cost the US influence, money and blood when the next crisis comes. Diplomacy is not about making other people feel good. It's about making the world safer for Americans. That's not what John Bolton will do. He will cost us. And not good feeling. Lives.
