Fred Kaplan writes for Slate:

The opportunity presented by 9/11 may not be irretrievably lost, but it has been muffed, and its recovery will require more decisive signals than Bush has so far sent. It will also, to be fair, require a less prickly world-weariness on the part of the French and Germans. Maybe they should reconvene the Prague Summit and, this time, take it seriously.

I can’t help but note how Colin Powell is conspicuously absent in the column. He was (and still is?) the only hope that the current US administration could actually turn things around. It’s looking more and more, however, like only a different US administration will be able to do so. God knows what will happen between now and the time when this change does take place.
