I have strong suspicions that William Kristol has been drugged and kidnapped and is being held against his will in some dank basement somewhere.
The Weekly Standard's blog posted this statement supposedly written by Kristol, and there's just no way…
"We could be at an historical inflection point in Iran. The United States may be able to play an important role… Presuming ahead of time that Obama will fail to exercise leadership, and cataloguing this episode pre-emptively as another in a list of Obama failures, would be a mistake.
"The U.S. has a huge stake in the possible transformation, or at least reformation, of the Iranian regime. If there's some chance of that happening, and some chance of U.S. policy contributing to that outcome, we should hope Obama does the right thing, and urge and pressure him to do so — because then the United States will be doing the right thing, and the United States, and the world, will benefit."
That's an even more obvious sham than Iran's election. Come on, people, you're not fooling anyone.
