David Ignatius doesn’t really work for The Washington Post. That’s just his cover gig.
He’s more so the longest serving media asset for the American security state, specifically Langley.
Ignatius has been on the receiving end of many spoon-fed “scoops” during his 50 year career. Most recently, he published a piece on Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s allegedly scandalous communications with the Russians (the story was nonsense and nothing more than a means to sabotage an enemy of the administrative state). Flynn did nothing out of the ordinary, but the Ignatius-launched campaign succeeded in removing the unconventional (by D.C. standards) leader from former President Donald Trump’s inner circle. Read this Politico piece on the many “scoops” he’s received from the national security state.
That’s why his column in The Washington Post today, titled, “President Biden should not run again in 2024,” is worthy of your time and attention.
While devoting the first several graphs to lavishing praise upon President Biden, Ignatius finished buttering him up and delivers what he meant to say.
