Don't Know Much About History: Cold War Edition

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on July 15, 2009

My latest column for the New Ledger concerns Barack Obama’s recent speech in Moscow, and its shortcomings:

It was only a little over a week ago when I wrote of Andrew O’Hehir’s disturbing and objectionable efforts to rewrite the history of the Cold War. I harbored the desperate hope that O’Hehir’s revisionism was the exception, and not the rule. But I see that such hopes are in vain; no less than the President of the United States glossed over the tough matter that makes up the telling of the Cold War while he was in Russia this past week.

Read it all.
