A diplomatic row blew up over Bermuda's decision to accept the four Chinese Muslim Uighurs on a US request.
Bermuda is a British overseas territory but the US official said Washington had acted secretly to ensure success.
Rather than worrying about U.S. interests, the Obama administration is so concerned with the Uighurs that it is willing to damage relations with the UK by going behind its back and negotiating a secret deal with an overseas territory of Britain.
So let's recap. Instead of simply returning the Uighurs to China and improving U.S.-Chinese relations, the Obama administration has instead managed to anger China and Britain for nothing. Wouldn't it be nice if we had an administration that could competently execute foreign policy in the service of U.S. interests?
