Charles Krauthammer received the Irving Kristol Award from AEI last night at their annual dinner (AKA “The Prom”). He delivered a truly astounding speech. While a bit long for a dinner audience, I think it laid out the best case for a conservative, American, foreign policy in the 21st century I have ever heard. In all modesty he echoed many of the things I’ve been writing around here for a long time, but he said them better, clearer and with more authority than I ever could. I don’t see it on the AEI website yet, but I’m sure it will be published or posted somewhere. When it is, it will be a must-read. Also, I assume it will be on C-SPAN at some point, if it wasn’t already.
