Obama Meets his Anzio

Paul Krugman (New York Times, Oct. 6, 2009) claims that progressives have lost faith in the President because of his soft treatment of Wall Street.

Alas, the betrayal is much more profound and includes his endorsement of the outrageous States Secrets privilege, the failure to bring the innocent Uighurs to the United States as refugees, and his failure to prosecute those responsible for the torture memorandums.

He might not have succeeded, but at least he could have fought for each of these.
