Point of Order

Thank goodness President Obama has restored our reputation abroad:

A Polish news magazine said on Sunday it had obtained a secret recording of Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski, in contention for a senior European Union job, saying that Poland's relationship with the United States was worthless.

After blindsiding Poland by cancelling one defense plan on the anniversary of the Soviet Union's invasion of Poland in 1939 and then pretending to have stared down Putin over Ukraine, Poland is worried about our commitment?

To be fair, Poland should never rely on anyone but themselves to stop the Russians. And Poland does seem to be doing that, as I note in this post.

And I think that the value of Poland's relationship with America will rise dramatically in January 2017.
