|Even these two think this group is made up of idiots.|
Let's face it - our so-called "best and brightest"
are a bunch of fucking morons.
An array of high-level former U.S. officials, both Democrats and Republicans, were in France over the weekend calling for regime change in Iran and throwing their collective weight behind an Iranian dissident group once designated as a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.
“You’ve got an assortment of former generals and senior politicians from all over the world here,” Howard Dean said as he headed to the annual rally held by the National Council of Resistance of Iran. The group is an umbrella organization of Iranian opposition groups, the largest of which is the Mujahedin-e Khalq, which was removed from EU and U.S. terrorist lists in 2009 and 2012 respectively reports the Washington Times.
The event was scheduled to include former GOP U.N. Ambassadors John R. Bolton and Democrat Bill Richardson, former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Democrat Rep. Patrick Kennedy, former Sen. Joe Lieberman and others.
“I think the thing that brings us together is human rights,” Dean, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, told The Washington Times when asked how such a diverse collection of U.S. dignitaries agreed to speak at the rally.
Bolton went further, telling The Times that the event, which drew more than 30,000 Iranian dissidents to Villepinte, France, was about raising “the larger issue of the illegitimacy of Iran’s mullahs and their regime in Tehran.”
