I posted this at Current Intelligence in my last post there for 2011. Not a good year for the European Union. In the next issue of CI, I will have a piece reviewing the year in international organizations. Yep, not an entirely positive one, but some did very well, especially given expectations (that would be you, Arab League).
Anyhow, take a gander. I will have few posts this week, as I am currently in a wifi-less land except when I duck into Starbucks.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday season.
