“The official, a thoughtful, experienced national security hand, emphasized to me that we have to find a way to have patience.”

Strategic patience, in case you haven’t figured it out yet, is a way to make doing nothing seem like a smart deliberate strategy.

As plans go it’s really stupid, but strategic patience isn’t a plan, it’s an excuse to avoid having a plan.
But these days Americans have to exercise a whole lot of “strategic patience” while watching Biden lie, gaslight, and stumble through Obama’s third term.
