I don’t often use pictures on SOG, but I do occasionally refer to them. If you want to see all our Mid-East failures summed up in one bittersweet image, look at “FIRSTPERSON FROM THE FRONTLINES” at MSNBC, page 1, bottom row, third picture. Read the message that goes with it. If you want a quick take, Michael Shaw has it up at BagNewsNotes.
A lot of other things going on today, so it’ll be tonight or tomorrow before I can follow up on the Obama speech — impact, value, consequences. Though if you want some early takes, please read the comments on yesterday’s post.
