Obama’s vision: hegemony without torture
This is not a responsible retreat from delusions of grandeur, but simply more of the same [American interventionism, a hallmark of modern liberalism] in a slightly less menacing form.
One problem I see is unlike with second-term Bill Clinton when the Republican Congress — out of spite? — made real-conservative noises about this and nearly successfully fenced him in, today’s GOP (bare-fanged neocons) are just as bad if not worse (witness Iraq) since their Reichstag fire, ‘9/11 changed everything™’. If Obama got in there’d be nothing really holding him back.
