Brussels Spins New Refugee Policy

    Can’t you just imagine the next babble out of Brussels – in perfect monotonal unison, “We ALL Bundle”…

  • Andrew Allison

    Just another manifestation of the complete and utter disconnect between Brussels and the populace of the EU. This will not end well.

    “Hugging the News Cycle;” What’s that? Is this the new iteration of TAI’s attempt to replace “Via Meadia?”

    Just curious.

    • Eurydice

      Yes, I was wondering about that. Considering how few articles there have been on this site lately, I would think it’s more “Waving hello at the news cycle from somewhere down the street” – but that’s probably not as catchy.

      • WigWag

        I’ve been a longtime fan of TAI but there is obviously something going on with the site that is not good. The quantity of the posts is substantially diminished and there has been a diminution in the quality as well. I hope none of this is because one or more of the senior editors are unwell or have unwell family members.

        Losing Walter Russell Mead, whether by mutual agreement or if he was terminated, was a real body blow to TAI. He’s one of a kind; for an opinion oriented journal to lose him is akin the the New England Patriots losing Tom Brady. But given the devotion of legions of loyal readers to the American Interest, you would think that the publishers and editors would feel the need to provide at least some explanation for the obvious upheaval.

          Yes, I’ve been following him since the old “dead tree” era of Foreign Affairs. I may not have agreed with him always, but I could trust that his work came from logic, reason and research. What’s going on here now, not so much.
