Andrew Sullivan is having a hard time of it. Upon hearing that John Brennan was Barack Obama’s leading candidate to head the CIA, he wrote:
We didn’t work our butts off to elect Obama only to get Bush another four years at CIA. If Brennan emerges as the pick, those of us against the continuation of war crimes and the prosecution of war criminals will have to oppose him strenuously in the nomination process. We will, in fact, have to go to war with Obama before he even takes office.
I wouldn’t sweat it if I were Obama. When Sullivan “goes to war,” he packs it up and blames his fellow soldiers the moment things get tough.
