KENNETH ANDERSON: The Millennium Development Goals and the Obama Administration’s Continuity with John Bolton. “Ambassador Rice’s language is so close to what Ambassador Bolton said five years ago it seems unlikely to me it was by accident; it seems more like a diplomatic-legal signal that the US position is that it never did commit itself to what Ambassador Bolton’s critics said the US had committed itself to do. I’m not in the least unhappy that the administration has taken this position, of course; but it is this week’s instance of yet more continuity with the Bush administration’s then-wicked, wicked position.” When Bush did it it was wicked; when Obama does it, it’s “pragmatic.”
