Bolton Hearings

Over at Slate.com, Fred Kaplan, a big critic of John Bolton, thinks the hawkish U.N. envoy nominee tanked on the first day of Senate confirmation hearings. He points to Bolton's evasiveness on a variety of topics and thought Bolton never really showed any desire to want to improve the battered world body.

However, I didn't see any mention in Kaplan's piece about Kofi Annan calling Bolton and telling him to "get yourself confirmed quickly"? National Review is running an editorial supporting Bolton's nomination, and takes on the charge that Bolton fired intel officers who didn't agree with Bolton's policy conclusions - specifically on alleged Cuba's bio-weapons program.
