Jeane J. Kirkpatrick 1926-2006

I was say to read in Drudge today that former U.N. Ambassador, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, died in her sleep yesterday at the age of 80.

I don't have time to write a lengthy post about this fine American patriot, but I will include a rather timely quote from Bill Bennett.

Bennett said the Iraq Study Group so prominently in the news "would have been better with Jeane Kirkpatrick on it ... She had no patience with tyrannies, said they had to be confronted, you couldn't deal with tyrannies, that there were some people you could work with - these people you couldn't."

She will be missed.

Amen to that! I always admired that woman, notice that she never was included in so many "studies" and such, she was too astute for the globalists!
May her family be comforted in this time!

She had guts & was nobody's fool.

I found out today that she was a marxist before she was a democrat.

May she rest in peace.

If she had been on the ISG, Tehran could be ashes by now.
