Redemption is the title of my column for today. There will be some readers puzzled by this column. To understand how I reached this point, you may wish to go over the following past entries in this blog and elsewhere:
Nationalism, my column in the Inquirer on August 19, 2002.
Media can’t be liable for playing tapes, my entry for June 9, 2005.
Heretical thoughts, on June 10, 2005, which gives an overview of some of the difficulties involved in asking for change.
Last Senator standing, my column in the Inquirer which came out on June 12, 2005.
A happy shrewdness, Machiavelli suggests, on June 14, 2005.
Where we’re at, June 25, 2005. My survey of events as of a week later, and how we should react to them. In view of events since this entry, I view it as improbable that the President can summon the sort of act of will necessary to redeem herself, and that furthermore, the actions of her supporters in Congress only serves to indicate that up to this point, the administration is more interested in a cover-up, than in coming clean.
You can also survey my Crisis Mode entries for the development of my opinions and thought.
United Nations Remains as Relevant as it Ever Was is my Arab News column for this week.
