The Corner

The one and only.



Andy, it’s nothing to do with today’s Interpol, of course, but since you mention that organization, it’s an excuse to bring up the interesting, if awkward, historical fact that amongst its previous leaders was Reinhard Heydrich, one of the worst of the Third Reich’s killers, whose career both as Interpol president and Reichsprotektor of “Bohemia and Moravia” came to a well-deserved end when he was assassinated by Czech patriots in 1942.   Don’t get me wrong. This is not a stealth-Godwin attack. Today’s Interpol does excellent work — although that is no reason to exempt its activities within the United States from American law (and the constitutional protections enshrined within it).
