New York Post Online Edition:: "April 20, 2005 -- THE hearings on John Bolton, President Bush's nominee for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, once again highlight the Democratic Party's most glaring weakness: national security.

Assume that everything negative they say about Bolton is true — that as an undersecretary of state he was a 'bully' to his subordinates and overly guarded about the release of information; that his angry, 'in your face' style will further alienate U.S. relations with the United Nations.

Now put it in context: 9/11 was the result of colossal intelligence failures due in large part to bureaucratic turf battles and careerists resistant to reform. The United Nations is a swamp corrupted by the Oil-for-Food scandal, child sex rings run by U.N. 'peacekeepers' and indifference to the ongoing slaughter in Darfur. Should America have an ambassador willing to preserve the status quo — or one who'll press for meaningful reform?
