Bader On TRA

"A leading US foreign policy expert is charging that the administration of US President Barack Obama has “shown little to no knowledge or real interest” in the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA). William Bader, a former chief of staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, makes his case in a letter given prominent display in Thursday’s edition of the Financial Times."
No shit. I've been saying that since the beginning, and most recently here, but the stupid commies over here quite naturally don't want to know (because obviously, Obama is "awesome"). William Lowther continues his report on Bader's remarks...
"He says that first the administration of former US president George W. Bush and now the Obama administration have neglected the TRA and the legislative binding of its articles which were “most reluctantly signed” by then-US President Jimmy Carter on April 10, 1979."
You know what Jimmy Carter is to me? A euphemism.
