there was a kqed forum podcast of an interview of richard haas, chairman of the cfr and author of a new book. he's talking a lot about 'integration', a term by which he means using other countries to advance american interests. haas was in the bush 2 administration before, but was a colin powell pal, so kind of had to move on when powell's views on appeasement were rejected in the neo-con ascendance.
