Michael O’Hanlon Thinks Kerry Is Doing Great!

NBC Nightly News aired a segment on Kerry’s nuclear speech yesterday. It noted that some experts think nuclear terrorism is “a shrewd campaign focus.” And for evidence it quoted Michael O’Hanlon saying, “A broad issue of nuclear safety is actually more important than Iraq for long-term American well-being.” O’Hanlon, according to NBC, is a “foreign policy expert.” He’s that, but he is also a Kerry advisor, part of the Kerry “brain trust” on foreign policy, according to at least one report. This is a little like quoting Condi Rice as a neutral source about how great Bush’s speech at the Air Force Academy was today. Pretty outrageous. Tim Graham, over to you.
