“SMART DIPLOMACY” UPDATE: Taliban Rising?

Another crisis that the Obama Administration thought it had successfully relegated to the back burner appears to be furiously bubbling up again. . . .

The world the President is preparing to leave behind him increasingly doesn’t look like the one he promised on the campaign trail in 2008.

Expiration date, reached.
