BILL CLINTON is having some

BILL CLINTON is having some sort of Scott Ritter reversal-of-earlier-policies moment:

"We can't run," Clinton pointed out. "If you got an interdependent world, and you cannot kill, jail or occupy all your adversaries, sooner or later you have to make a deal."

Like ... what, for example? Cede Iowa to Islam? Let Mullah Omah throw the first ball of the World Series? Enforce the death penalty for adultery? What "deal" you be proposin', Bill?

He said he believed Washington overreacted to German and French opposition to US plans for military action against Iraq and suggested that the current administration had trouble juggling foreign and domestic issues.

"Since September 11, it looks like we can't hold two guns at the same time," Clinton said. "If you fight terrorism, you can't make America a better place to be."

Clinton sure did less than he should have to fight terrorism. And, as we know, everything turned out just great!

UPDATE. Moxie says it better than I ever could, and looks better doing it. Yo, Mox!
