Iran's best friend: Bush
Glen Greenwald's most recent post and this one from Tuesday have a lot on the recent Iran-Iraq festival of love, and the incoherence of the US supporting the Maliki regime in Iraq but opposing the Khamenei/Ahmadinejad regime in Iran. Why they punditocracy's heads aren't exploding with the utter stupidity and self-contradictory shoot-ourselves-in-the-foot-ness of the Bush administration's Iraq and Iran policies is a great mystery. You shouldn't have to read blogs to learn this kind of stuff. (To be fair to the MSM, Tim Russert did ask Dick Cheney about this in this interview that Greenwald links to).
