Belmont Club » Is Democracy Cool Again?
The Freedom Agenda is respectable again. After years of laughing at the idea that spreading democracy was America’s most useful foreign policy weapon and touting grand bargains with the worst regimes in world, even the New York Times sees in the departure of Tunisian President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali the startling idea that Arabs will not necessarily tolerate tyranny forever.
Let's hope the administration doesn't bungle this one. It may be like Venona, the case for make wikileaks public was pretty strong.
