The Mess Left Behind

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: "Sooner or later, heaving buckets of blame onto George W. Bush for what we as a nation are being forced to endure will become a facile excuse; at some point, the whole kit and caboodle will be the sole property of President Barack Obama, whether he likes it or not and be damned to excuses. Already, his administration has taken enough dramatic measures to ensure that, should something go wrong, a fair share of censure will and rightly should be placed on the present and not the past."

How to Trap a President in a Losing War

Tom Engelhardt, TomDispatch.com: "Front and center in the debate over the Afghan War these days are General Stanley 'Stan' McChrystal, Afghan war commander, whose 'classified, pre-decisional' and devastating report - almost eight years and at least $220 billion later, the war is a complete disaster - was conveniently, not to say suspiciously, leaked to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post by we-know-not-who at a particularly embarrassing moment for Barack Obama; Admiral Michael 'Mike' Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who has been increasingly vocal about a 'deteriorating' war and the need for more American boots on the ground; and the president himself, who blitzed every TV show in sight last Sunday and Monday for his health reform program, but spent significant time expressing doubts about sending more American troops to Afghanistan. ('I'm not interested in just being in Afghanistan for the sake of being in Afghanistan ... or sending a message that America is here for the duration.')"

Twenty-Five Million

Eric Desrosiers, Le Devoir: "People are saying that the signs of an economic recovery and of banks' return to profitability remove the pressure on governments to tighten the rules on the financial sector that was the source of the crisis. Yet the continuation of the deterioration in the labor market for many months still ought to constitute a powerful indicator that they should persevere in their efforts."
