The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

Daniel Drezner no longer expects truth-telling from Brookings Foreign Policy senior fellows: :: Daniel W. Drezner :: Drezner's assignment: define the foreign policy community: Spencer Ackerman and Henry Farrell are having some fun at Michael O'Hanlon's expense, in response to the latter's Wall Street Journal op-ed this past week. The O'Hanlon jihad in and of itself I find uninteresting -- O'Hanlon distorted his "hook," but, frankly, I've read a lot worse on major op-ed pages...

The bar is indeed low.

Why oh why can't we have better thinktanks?
