I wish I could do an impression of ET...

David Adesnik has a defence of Eliot Abrams up. Good reading, though I'm not sure I'd go so far as Adesnik in Abrams defence. In fact I wouldn't go that far. But he makes some good points and it's worth a read. Whatever else his record holds, Abrams does deserve credit in playing a key role in turning support away from Pinochet in Chile. For me, he pretty much epitomises the "neo-con" paradox, laudable aims and good works combined with unfortunate murk in almost equal measure.

Personally, I wouldn't have him back. But Adesnik is almost certainly right in cautioning against hysteria.
