You Can't Know the Players Without a Scorecard
Foreign Policy's cover story on the "Committee that Runs the World," i.e., the Bush national security team, is well worth a read. (Try playing the "two degrees of Henry Kissinger" game at home!) Over at Democracy Arsenal, Derek Chollet has this positive assessment of the second-term "dream team" Condoleezza Rice is assembling at State. Over at Slate, Fred Kaplan has this argument on why John Bolton is actually out of step with Bush's current foreign policy team -- and certainly out of step with Rice's statement at the ASIL meeting that the promotion of international law is "one of the pillars" of U.S. foreign policy.
