Wow. That’s some kind of cognitive dissonance right there. Obama’s hand-me-down Sec. of Defense Gates doesn’t seem to appreciate the rank hypocrisy here:
“I’m concerned about the level of frankly subversive activity that the Iranians are carrying on in a number of places in Latin America particularly South America and Central America,” Gates told lawmakers.
It’s not like the United States has been undertaking subversive activities, particularly Latin America, but also in the Middle East, Asia — heck, everywhere. It’s the standard M.O. for Uncle Sam. But I guess it’s just like with the nukes: if anyone else tries to get ’em, it’s the end of the world and a valid excuse to do anything, the fact that we have ’em along with our BFFs Israel and Pakistan doesn’t seem to bother anyone.
