Bits and Pieces - April 7, 2010

Mostly stuff on the NPR, but let's start with these:

Ensnared by Error on Growing U.S. Watch List. The degree of secrecy being applied by the government to these lists is just silly, as evidenced by what the Times has been able to infer. Plus the damage it is doing to constitutional protections.

Kudos to The Globe and Mail for their continuing series on Haiti. This is something that needs to stay in our consciousness until Haiti becomes a functioning country again.

The government has fallen in Kyrgyzstan. Some background here and here.

And now the NPR stuff. I hope to incorporate some of this in a post that I will closet myself to write after I post this.

First reaction to the Nuclear Posture Review by Ward Wilson.

First reaction from Jeffrey Lewis. These two posts take a broad view. That's what I intend to do next, with a few other points.

First reaction from Josh Pollock.

A first reaction from Europe.

If you want one overview, Fred Kaplan's is pretty good.

Obama’s Nuclear Strategy Intended as a Message. David E. Sanger and Thom Shanker try to fit the NPR into the Times's message about attacking Iran.

Nothing surprising from Joe Biden, but you might like to see what he has to say. He's been very involved with these matters over the years, so he has to be pleased.

Sergei Lavrov, mostly on New START.
