It’s hard to keep up with those eager beavers over at Legal Insurrection, in my view the best blog on the internet today–and not just on legal issues. I was sitting down to my bowl of Nissin noodles, when I saw that LI had beat me to the punch of linking to the LA Times story that, in essence, confirms what I wrote earlier in my “Peace in our Time” post about the US-Russia “deal” on Syrian CW,
The “deal” will be, I promise you, a multinational mess that will require seemingly endless discussions and travel and drafts of this and that protocol with this and that amendment.
The LAT headline reads, “U.S. backs off deadline for Syria to submit chemical weapons list.” Surprise! Another “red” line gets erased.
Oh, you mean like what I posted a week ago?
This will be played up by the hack probamagandists as a huge victory for The Deal Leader.
Instead, it will actually turn out to be a way to make this whole issue go away into a fog of negotiations and diplo-speak buried in obscure committees at the United Nations.
Which was pretty much a foregone conclusion with this administration anyway.
