Yettaw, American Prisoner In Myanmar, Freed With Help From Jim Webb
YANGON, Myanmar — Days after the world slammed Myanmar for sentencing Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to more house arrest, U.S. Senator Jim Webb arrived in the military-ruled country’s capital Friday.
There are, of course, critics of this sort of diplomacy. These coming from the stupids who insist that just talking to our foes in the world is “rewarding bad behavior.” John Bolton thinks he’s Doctor Spock. But it’s diplomacy like this and the resulting successes that President Obama promised.
Nice work, Senator.
