Matt, I think it’s a mistake to view the memorandum of understanding as though it were a piece of legislation or a legally binding document. It is an entirely political statement. Both sides are trying to spin it their way now, and there’s no reason for either side to disarm–especially since the somewhat opaque “in light of” phrasing makes it possible to interpret it in several ways.
