At the press conference, one journalist asked him if India had the right to take action against terrorists on Pakistani territory (as Obama has suggested he would do). Obama dodged the question, but it does point out the geopolitical complications of such a policy.
Anyway, I am please with Obama’s team. I know Hillary will work very hard and I’ll bet (any takers?) she will be more loyal and less complicated than most people expect. I understand that GEN. Jones is a good choice, and I respect Gates (despite whatever murk is in his past) as a manager and as a forward thinker. As for the rest, we’ll see. I do expect big things from Eric Holder. There are many important legal issues surrounding Bush and the “War on Terror” that needed to be sorted out and/or rectified. I am cautiously optimistic that Obama/Holder will act accordingly.
