Glenn Reynolds remembers how Chas Freeman was yet another Obama appointee who had connections to stuff that nobody noticed. He quotes Mark Hemingway as saying that the “NYT didn’t write a single word about the controversy until after the fact.”  Some commentators have expressed surprise at all the attention being given to Van Jones, who they describe as a low-level appointee.
