Bill Bennett reads the Iraq Study Group Report and feels that the commissioners of the group are "smug, arrogant, insufferable", presumably because they didn’t give a wholehearted endorsement to everything happening in Iraq.

In the midst of his rant, the smug, arrogant and insufferable Bill Bennett poses the following question:

Who are these commissioners and what is their expertise in Iraq — or even foreign policy?

Well, asshole, James Baker was Secretary of State under Bush 41 at the time of the Gulf War.  Can we start there?

Lee Hamilton was chairman and ranking member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs (now the Committee on International Relations) and chaired the Subcommittee on Europe and the Middle East from the early 1970s until 1993.

And you have another former Secretary of State and a former Secretary of Defense in the group.

Bennett, of course, has no foreign policy experience.

But since he made experience an issue, let me ask him this:

What is President Bush’s experience in foreign policy or as Commander-in Chief?

Just wondering…
