Chickenhawk Bill Kristol got called out in an epic way on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, when Katrina vanden Heuvel threw Kristol in with the Iraq “architects of catastrophe” and suggested that Kristol enlist if he wanted to fix the region.
While addressing the need for accountability regarding the people who got Iraq wrong, vanden Heuvel called Kristol and the other neocon chickenhawks out and told point-blank told Kristol:
“If you feel so strongly, you should, with all due respect, enlist in the Iraqi army.”
Kristol, with nothing to say to defend himself, fired back, “That’s a very cute line, Katrina.”
Kristol, like most neocon “armchair warriors,” blames President Obama for the problems, arguing that the Bush Administration “left things peaceful.” Vanden Heuvel pointed out that Obama couldn’t get a status of forces agreement, but “pouring more men, women, and money” into the region was not the solution to the current problems.
Watch Katrina vanden Heuvel smack down chickenhawk Bill Kristol.
