The heart of Murderers' Row weighs in, with me (Friedman) and against me (sorta; Krugman).

And incidentally, Thomas Friedman pretty effectively sums up my position. If you want to know how I'd have structured my argument were I a better writer with more time and deeper knowledge, read the Friedman column. (He even quotes that same bit of the Sanger piece that I quoted yesterday, which means that I'm as smart as he is.)

Update: Kristof's with me, too.

Another update: I still don't think the reflexive anti-UAE reaction was justified, but the fact that the Coast Guard apparently had concerns about the deal does make me glad that the 45-day review is going to go through after all.
