Pierre Gemayal, Christian leader, was assasinated in Lebanon. Bush calls it terrorism and Bolton is brutally honest:
The United States has accused Syria and Iran of plotting to topple Saniora's government, which is dominated by politicians opposed to Syrian influence in Lebanon.
Referring to an investigation into the assassination in 2005 of Hariri, who also tried to limit Syrian influence in the country, Bolton told reporters: "I think people can draw their own conclusions" about the Gemayel killing.
Asked whether the U.N. Security Council should continue a tribunal investigating the Hariri killing because of the "instability" it has created, Bolton lashed out.
"How incredibly wrong that would be. How incredibly wrong that would be. Instability? They're killing people in Lebanon. They're assassinating political leaders. Not the time to seek justice? There may be those on the Security Council who say it. Let them step forward and say it," Bolton said.
I sure hope he gets to keep this job.
