“Check out the State Department’s archive page of Bolton’s speeches, op-eds in 2002 and early 2003. You won’t find anything calling for military action against Iraq,” says @FredFleitz. bit.ly/2JvvhKf via @BreitbartNews @AmbJohnBolton #Iraq
Fleitz: “Bolton was not involved in any decision-making or planning for the #Iraq War because Secretary of State Colin Powell and Deputy Secretary Richard Armitage froze him out. As Bolton’s chief of staff, I witnessed this first hand.”
Fleitz: “I remember well how State Department offices were told by Powell’s and Armitage’s staffs not to share any information with Bolton and his staff about Iraq war planning.” #Iraq @FredFleitz @AmbJohnBolton
Fleitz: @AmbJohnBolton “is the last person the foreign policy establishment wants to see leading the State Department. They know he has an intimate knowledge of the State bureaucracy and will exercise the leadership to ensure it implements the president’s policies.”
