Ivo Daalder : PNAC Signer, Supporter and Sneaky Bastard

Ivo Daalder was one of the signers of the PNAC documents, along with Max Boot, Dick Cheney, Rummy, "Scooter" Libby and a host of other sub-par minds. Now, recently the PNAC'ers have been trying to reestablish themselves into polite society. The have pulled down the PNAC website. Ivo got himself a gig at TPMCafe when it first opened as the "Foreign Policy" guy, sadly, 2 or 3 hundred of us harassed Ivo every time he wrote there as he tried to argue that of all the things "we" need to get rid of from the Bush administration, imperialism and pre-emptive war are two things we need to keep.

Ivo and his friends work for people like the Brookings Institution where ivory tower academics spend their time musing on the infallibility of their arguments, as men, women and children die in the sand, get parts of their bodies ripped off as explosions force hot metal through their bodies at 1,200 feet per second.

He and his fellow Pet Imperialists have been trying to reinsert themselves into the conversation, hoping we won't notice when they become advisors for the Obama campaign or do foreign policy speeches at universities. Or do talks in Beijing on foreign policy for Obama, whose campaign probably doesn't know of Ivo's bloody past. Sorry Ivo. We are going to remember for a long time. Ivo scrubbed his wikipedia page of any PNAC mention. A short bit was added back yesterday. Sorry Ivo, we are an army, you can change your wiki page again tomorrow and someone else will change it back. We are the ghosts that will haunt you in place of our brothers and sisters who you sent to die in the sand.

I agree with Richard Clarke, we can't let these people back into polite society.
