Living In Your Own Fantasy World

... is fine unless you're the President of the United States managing nuclear weapons negotiations with Iran.

Ben Rhodes, aspiring novelist, has apparently been Obama's foreign policy guru. Completely unqualified, many are accusing him of bamboozling the press about the nature of the deal in order to win support. My buddy, Dean, is aghast at this.

I'm going to mildly disagree with Dean on this one. The important part is not that Rhodes and Obama created a fantasy for the press, it's that they created one for themselves and drew the press into it.

They created a fantasy world about nuclear weapon negotiations with a country whose leaders regularly lead the populace in chants of "Death to America!"

If this isn't fatuous madness, I don't know what is.

The important part is they did this over the screams of people who knew better.

And got ignored.

Heck, it's not even "alternative media"-- Bryan Suits has been ranting that they're full of it since the subject came up.
But he's associated with military, thus evil. (Army; does Dark Secret Place on KFI. Episode last night was mostly him going on and on about it, with intense detail.)
