Bipartisan Foreign Policy

Lenin's Tomb directed me to an article in the Asian Times from 21 March 2001, about the difference beweeen words and actions of Bush admin Deputy Secretary Of Defense Paul Wolfowitz in Southeast Asia (with the prophetic sub-title "A man to keep a close eye on").

However, it begins with recounting how Richard Holbrooke praised Wolfie as is ex-collague, by - in May 2000! - bringing up how they cooperated in the US policy of covering and encouraging Indonesia's invasion of East Timor in 1975.

(I must admit, I still had a better opinion of Holbrooke until I read this.)
