Quick Hits III: That Opportunity Window

I am not one of those people getting agita over President Obama taking his time on deciding whether to send more troops to Afghanistan and, if so, how many more. I happen to think we should be getting the hell out of that sinkhole.

But there is an issue pertaining to that Good Old Arab Street that deeply concerns me and that is Obama not making good on his promises that the street will not be treated with Bushian disdain on his watch.

In fact, views are hardening in this regard.
Guantánamo is still open, Gaza is still blockaded and there is zero movement in getting Israelis and Palestinians to talk thing over.

It's time to get a move on, Barry.
