Looking Weak

Musharraf says the U.S. looks weak. Which reminds me that I heard an interesting interview with him on the radio the other day. He was asked about what Bush was like and said he thought he was an upright man. I'm paraphrasing, but his additional comment was something like this:
He is a man who tells you what he actually thinks, which I appreciate, and even better, he is willing to listen to what you actually think.
His tone implied those qualities are somewhat rare in world leadership circles, particularly the latter.

Meanwhile, American Digest has a simple exit strategy from Iraq & Afghanistan.

Update: Looking weak and feckless. Bret Stephens fields calls from French reporters on the failure of Obama's foreign policy.
