“Children” should not be in charge of foreign policy, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton said Thursday, responding to a State Department spokeswoman’s comments earlier this week about claims by some former squad members that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had deserted. “I think children are wonderful, but I don’t think they should be in charge of foreign policy,” he said.
