I was struck by this concluding sentence in this editorial in today’s Washington Post:
The administration has worried excessively that open U.S. support might damage the Green Movement. Now President Obama has publicly taken sides, and the battle inside Iran has reached a critical juncture. It’s time for the United States to do whatever it can, in public and covertly, to help those Iranians fighting for freedom.
Direct intervention in another country to foster regime change: How Bush of them.
