Clearly there's a whole lot more to play out in the Egypt story, and clearly the Obama Administration was caught flat-footed by the entire uprising. That said, I've been largely satisfied with their handling of things, once they found their way, and I've also been largely impressed with the adults of the Republican Party who've coalesced around the theme of "he did about as well as can be expected." Brit intellect Niall Ferguson's recently been out and about putting the screws to Mr. Obama over his handling of the situation, and I watched a bit of it via YouTube the other night. I came away from it with a tad less respect for Mr. Ferguson's intellect (which to that point had been high, very high). This morning, I espied this piece from The Atlantic and found it pretty close to the way I felt about Mr. Ferguson's opinions.
