When I read in the newspapers that the Bush Administration had backed off from a Clinton Administration commitment to get rid of landmines, my instinct was to assume the worst.
But Richard Garwin says Bush is right and I was wrong. And if Garwin says so, you can take it to the bank. I’m happy to stand corrected. [As Garwin points out, the issue of cluster munitions remains to be dealt with.]
I don’t expect to have much good to say about the Bush Administration over what I hope will be its final year, but that won’t, I hope, be for lack of willingness to give credit where it’s due.
And I’ll think less of John Kerry if he goes after Bush on this one.
