Bolton detractors revealed as nutjobs!

So the truth comes out...most of those whom accuse John Bolton of misbehavior, well, have issues of their own. First, Powerline http://powerlineblog.com/archives/010277.php uncovers the backround of one Frederick Vreeland, who sent an email to Senator Joe Biden, which contained the following:

Bolton "has all the qualities needed to harm the image and objectives in the U.N. and its affiliated international organizations. If it is now U.S. policy not to reform the U.N but to destroy it, Bolton is our man," Frederick Vreeland, a former U.S. ambassador to Morocco, said in an e-mail to the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee

Biden couldn't leak it to the AP fast enough. Powerline did some digging on Vreeland:

Vreeland appears to be a virtual caricature of a career CIA and State Department official. He is rich, socially connected--his mother was the fashion icon Diana Vreeland--and liberal. Vreeland's views on key foreign policy issues are typical of career State Department Democrats

In an article Frederick Vreeland wrote for the International Herald Tribune on the Morocco terrorist attacks of 2003, http://www.faithandvalues.com/tx/CGNS-7/2/, he balmes the usual suspects:

The irony is that these terrorist acts, like the similar ones a few days earlier in Saudi Arabia, are collateral damage from the U.S. strategy designed to rid the world of terrorism...Israel's lifestyle of constant terrorist threat is exactly what Americans want to avoid. And yet the United States is gradually following the path of successive Likud Party governments...

So it is not the fault of radical Islam; it is the Americans and the Jews that bring the terror upon themselves! Maggie Gyllenhaal is smiling right about now...

Next, LGF unveils the truth about Bolton accuser Melody Townsel, leader of Mothers Opposing Bush (MOB), who has a little confession of her own to make:

I plagiarized some columns while working for my college newspaper, and I was removed from staff. Months later, while working for another college newspaper, I wrote a review for a local play that tracked closely in format to another writer’s review — and, although it was not plagiarized, it made my editors, who had become aware of my recent past, very uncomfortable, and we mutually agreed that I would no longer submit stories to them.

Whose fault is this, Melody?

Republicans have dredged up un unfortunate chapter of my life...

Much like you are trying to do to John Bolton? Wow, talk about Instant Karma...

Finally, USA Today screams U.N. Nominee Faces New Allegations of Verbal Abuse
http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2005-04-24-bolton-allegations_x.htm. All it takes is one sentence to know we have some issues here:

On Friday, Lynne Finney, a former legal adviser to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), sent a letter to Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. Finney wrote that Bolton "screamed that I was fired" when she refused to lobby for a weakening of restrictions on the sale of infant formula in the developing world.
State Department deputy spokesman Adam Ereli said "no one at USAID at the time has any recollection" of such an incident.

Where Barbara Boxer is involved, expect looney liberals start falling from the trees...James Taranto exposes Lynne Finney http://www.opinionjournal.com/best/ in his April 25th Best of the Web:

So, who is Lynne Finney? To judge from the writings on her own Web site, she's a poster child for liberalism at its most eccentric-
This is a time of rapid evolution and intense transformation for us all. New discoveries in quantum physics, psychology, and spirituality are revealing ways to create wonderful new realities. It's estimated that more than 14 million people have already become enlightened or Self-realized...Things are heating up. Like popcorn, we are all popping faster and are reaching enlightenment at a rapid rate.


It also turns out she has a history of "recovering memories" of "abuse":
She was born into the madhouse of Hollywood's fantasy factory. Her mother was an artist and her father an award-winning screenwriter and novelist. She and her parents were portrayed in magazines as "the perfect family," but behind this facade was a nightmare world of violence and sexual abuse that lasted from the time Lynne was born until she was eight years old. Lynne had four near-death experiences that profoundly impacted her life. . . .

During her recovery process, Lynne began to have spiritual experiences that opened her to new perceptions of reality. She studied the scriptures of many religions, explored the teachings of spiritual masters, and emerged from a world she perceived as hell into a world of miracles...

These are the people that Democrats such as Joe Biden and Barbara Boxer are rolling out as proof that John Bolton is "unqualified" to serve as UN Ambassador. What a travesty!

If this is the best the Dems (and their pals in the media) can do, then John Bolton should be confirmed as the new UN Ambassador immediately - let's call a special sesion!

UPDATE 7PM: The AP still reports all the above as breathtaking news, as well as throwing in some further unsubstantiated allegations...
Doesn't anyone at these "news" outlets know how to Google, for Jeebus' sake??
