Obama as Rorschach

Glen Greenwald:

Obama has now embraced the fundamentals of the dreaded “Bush Doctrine”: namely, we will fight wars even in countries that are not posing any threat to us in order to prevent some future threat that may or may not emerge. …[L]ike most Obama decisions, last night he incorporated enough of every side and paid homage to conflicting principles such that it’s impossible to identify what he really believes … it appears to be a mishmash of political calculations bereft of principle and plagued by numerous internal contradictions that make it impossible to understand, let alone defend. Everyone gets to read into it whatever they want to see.
