Mary McCarthy Defender/Character Witness: We Have Nothing To Fear From A Nuclear Iran

Funny how Mary McCarthy gives money to liberals and gets vouchers from liberals, took and yet our MSM can't bring itself to mention her partisan leanings.

In the Christian Science Monitor today, author/liberal appeasement specialist Steven Simon guarantees us Iran will not use an atomic bomb nor give one to terrorists.

In an effort to deter the international community from imposing sanctions against Iran, the mullahs are trying to instill fear in the Western capitals that if pushed to the wall, they will resort to extreme measures. Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei took the lead in stressing, "The Islamic Republic is prepared to transfer the experience, knowledge, and technology of its scientists." However, such statements have to be viewed in the context of Iran's maladroit attempts to fend off international pressure, as opposed to an actual willingness to share its nuclear know-how with its many terrorist allies.

Ah. They're threatening to transfer nuclear technology to terrorists, but Steven Simon knows better. He knows the minds of the Iranians better than the Iranians do, you see.

Last time we came across his name, he was being identified in the media merely as an "author" as he vouched that Mary McCarthy was a good, solid intelligence agent.

Just mentioned on O'Reilly. Not the McCarthy angle; he just mentioned Simon's article.

Again, ad nauseum:

The MSM forever natters on about a neocon cabal in our national security apparatus, but they never whisper even the possibility that there's a neoliberal cabal fighting them hammer and tong sickle.

Partisanship and ideology are only bad or even worth mentioning when it's partisanship from the right.

No, strike that. Partisans and ideologues only exist on the right; these rightwing partisans are opposed not by left-wing partisans, but by nonpartisans, who are just full of "common sense" and a "smart, reasonable plan for what's best for America's national security."

Update: Simon wrote a similar piece two weeks ago with Richard F'n' Clarke for the NYT (pay to read, but the headline is "Bombs That Would Backfire," so you can figure it out from there).
