"Obama's Kettle of Hawks"

I could post endless examples of the far left's distaste for what the Obama administration is shaping up to be. I’m not sure what it is about watching simpletons on the far left wringing their hands in distress that I find so enjoyable. Here is moron extraordinaire Jeremy Scahill writing for Counterpunch.
“When announcing his foreign policy team on Monday, Obama said: "I didn't go around checking their voter registration." That is a bit hard to believe, given the 63-question application to work in his White House. But Obama clearly did check their credentials, and the disturbing truth is that he liked what he saw.

The assembly of Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, Susan Rice and Joe Biden is a kettle of hawks with a proven track record of support for the Iraq war, militaristic interventionism, neoliberal economic policies and a worldview consistent with the foreign policy arch that stretches from George HW Bush's time in office to the present.

...There is not a single, solid anti-war voice in the upper echelons of the Obama foreign policy apparatus.”
