Regular AmSpec contributor Andrew Cline interviews John Bolton. It’s an interesting bit, no doubt foreshadowing some of the ground to be covered in Bolton’s soon-to-be-released book. The end of the piece is particularly illuminating, though:
At the end of the interview, a woman from the Clean Air, Cool Planet conference taking place in the ballrooms a few yards away, Debbie Grinnel of Massachusetts, came over and accosted Bolton. She berated him for supporting the Iraq war, said he was an awful person, and asked how he could live with himself. She said there was no reason to invade Iraq, to which he asked if she’d ever seen someone burned by chemical weapons, but she had already turned and walked away. Bolton said he rarely gets that kind of treatment, though it happened a few times in New York City.
