A telling appointment

The Obama Administration has offered a "the influential, low-profile job of chairman of the National Intelligence Council" to Chas Freemen (Politico).

Mr. Freemen is known for many things - among them, effectively saying the Tiananmen Square victims of 1989 deserved what they got (Weekly Standard Blog).

So much for the fellow who would "be frank with the Chinese about such failings and will press them to respect human rights" (National Review Online - Campaign Spot). Appeasement is back.
