I propose that Fahd Rimawi’s case is exactly the sort of thing most of us should be able to get behind. If you’re a neo-con slavishly following the administration’s line in all things Middle Eastern, tell yourself that pressuring Jordan on Rimawi would be in keeping with Bush’s Forward Strategy of Freedom. If you’re a wild-eyed lefty, you can back the same move as exactly the sort of peaceful democracy promoting initiative that you wanted all along as an alternative to war.
Abu Aardvark has the details.
