Shocking news of the day

The BBC is reporting, and Democracy Now actually repeated it this morning as if it were news, that "[John Bolton] says the US deliberately resisted calls for a immediate ceasefire during the conflict in Lebanon in the summer of 2006."

As we used to say on Baker St., "No shit, Sherlock."

Actually the only thing approaching news, and even this is hardly surprising given what we know about John Bolton, is that he admits publicly to being "damned proud of what we did." That "what we did" involves, of course, responsibility for the deaths of more than a thousand Lebanese and the destruction of a substantial portion of the country's infrastructure. Definitely something to be proud of.
