Israel is hand-wringing and introspective about its role in Haiti.
France is complaining.
And Obama is being criticized for not acting fast enough on Haiti.
Just kidding! He’s actually being commended for getting in front of the tragedy and for putting out “a torrent of news releases, briefings, fact sheets and statements that flowed out of the White House in the days after the earthquake.” I’m sure that saved a lot of extra lives, all those press releases. But no one can say the NY Times isn’t easily impressed.
