Oh Shut Up

Benazir Bhutto hasn’t been dead twelve hours and we’re already getting this crap:

Obama Adviser: Bhutto Assassination Reminds Us That Hillary Made Wrong Call On Iraq War

REPORTER: But looking ahead, does the assassination put on the front burner foreign policy credentials in the closing days?

AXELROD: Well, it puts on the table foreign policy judgment, and that’s a discussion we welcome. Barack Obama had the judgment to oppose the war in Iraq, and he warned at the time it would divert us from Afghanistan and al Qaeda, and now we see the effect of that. Al Qaeda’s resurgent, they’re a powerful force now in Pakistan, they may have been involved — we’ve been here, so I don’t know whether the news has been updated, but there’s a suspicion they may have been involved in this.

I think his judgment was good. Senator Clinton made a different judgment, so let’s have that discussion.

Honestly, sometimes people just don’t know when to STFU.
