on one side, images of the terror bombing in Brussels; on the other, Barack Obama doing the wave with Raul Castro at a baseball game in Havana.When Brussels intervened, some argued that Obama should have cut short his trip and come back home.Nonetheless, Obama could have done without the baseball. Obama came into office believing that we had vastly exaggerated the threat of terrorism and allowed it to pervert both our values and our foreign policy. He declared a unilateral end to the global war on terror and downplayed the threat ever since. David Axelrod called Obama's response "tone deaf".It's not as if Obama is so supercool that he never shows emotion.He's been in office seven years, yet seems utterly fixed on his campaign promises and prepresidential obsessions: shutting down Guantanamo prison, rapprochement with Iran, engagement with tyrants (hence Havana), making the oceans recede (hence the Paris climate trip). Next we'll see yet another useless Washington "summit" on yet another Obama idee fixe: eliminating nuclear materials.
