Bolton watch: 5 Ex-Secretaries of State support him

John Bolton now has five former Secretaries of State in his corner.

WASHINGTON – Five former U.S. secretaries of state urged the Senate on Tuesday to confirm John R. Bolton as U.N. ambassador.

“We must have an ambassador in place whose knowledge, experience, dedication and drive will be vital to protecting the American interest in an effective, forward-looking United Nations,” they said in a letter to Sen. Richard Lugar, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

I suppose they probably can’t say what they truly think of the UN, but it is true we need someone who will protect our interests and not kowtow to foreign opinion.  That’s not to say that we should isolate ourselves from the rest of the world, but compromising our principles makes for bad foreign policy.
