Rudy and the ISG

I didn’t blog yesterday about Rudy Giuliani skipping out on the invitation to join the Iraq Study Group so he could spend more time coasting on his reputation and earning money because I figured I didn’t have anything of great analytic import to add to the story, but if the press is really ignoring the story as completely as Kevin Drum suggests, I figure I’d better throw my two cents in — this is the perfect example of how hollow Giuliani’s claim to be a national security candidate is. He doesn’t know anything about military policy or foreign policy and he doesn’t even care about these topics.
