John Hawkins of Right Wing News thinks Republicans should insist on the ouster of Leon Panetta, claiming the CIA Director stepped irrecoverably and unforgivably beyond the bounds of civility when he joked about Alex Rodriguez impregnatingDick Cheney, which is certainly a fair point. But then, in a remark so off the top of his head it’s practically a form of self-trepanation, he adds:
Meanwhile, people across the world are looking to Iran and scratching their heads, wondering if the CIA has done anything to help the people.
Eric Cantor excoriated the Obama Administration for their low-key response, but only John Hawkins had a sufficient grasp of international relations to stand up for the Special Relationship between Iran and the CIA.
