Goodbye to the Three Amigos
Jacob Heilbrunn, Jacob Heilbrunn
The New York Times is marking the passing of the three amigos, as they were apparently dubbed by the now-disgraced Gen. David Petraeus, with an elegiac article about their contributions to foreign policy debates. The piece suggests that the three comrades--Senators Joseph Lieberman, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham--represented a bipartisan era in foreign affairs that is passing away. With Lieberman's retirement, so we are told, an era is over.
TAGGED: neoconservatism, Lindsey Graham, Joe Lieberman, John McCain
