Liberia, History, and Terrorism

Via Matthew Yglesias I found Jacob Levy's Liberia post at the Volokh Conspiracy, which is worth a read. One key graft: "Liberia's wounds are an ongoing result of the state's creation as a haven for resettled American former slaves-- on territory that was already inhabited." might cause one to have a sense of foreboding about the future of the Israeli-Palestinian controversy. Still, I think the best rationale for American involvement there is Taylor's al-Qaeda connections, which are bizarrely not getting play in the American media. To his credit, however, I just saw Wisconsin Senator Russell Feingold bring them up while channel-surfing to C-Span. That's why I vote for the man.
