Timothy Garton Ash on Europe

Great new piece by Timoty Garton Ash.
America is failing to recognize the potential of the European Union as an ally in the advancement of liberty around the world.
Finding a new article by Timothy Garton Ash reminds me of how I used to feel about receiving a new issue of The Economist in the mail: Excited cuz I'm about to learn something!

UPDATE: Take this nugget of insight, for instance:
And one could make a strong case that the European Union's agreement to open membership negotiations with Turkey will be a bigger contribution to winning the war on terrorism than the American-led occupation of Iraq.
UPDATE II: Here's another insightful (yet pessimistic) article on Euro-American relations.
