A Study in Critical Reading

Dan Drezner, the Spew's favorite IR blogger, has a very sharp post today: he considers an article in the New Republic about Obama's foreign policy team and decision-making processes. It is a very favorable account, and Drezner notes that the sources are entirely from the National Security Council, so what would you expect?

Still, thus far, it does seem to be the case that Obama has set up a far more functional FP process than his predecessor. But then again, it would be very hard to be as dysfunctional as Bush/Rice/Rumsfeld/Cheney/Powell.
