Mr. Znamenski, holding stuffed head of a wolf in his lap.  Znamenskii was the district chief of police in the Siberian town of Minusinsk when (George) Kennan visited in January, 1886.  Kennan found Znamenskii to be a petty Russian bureaucrat who obeyed the rules with a stupid and brutish disregard of all the circumstances.  Photo by Fidlerman in Tobolsk.

Baratunde Thurston (aka Jack Turner) sums up my questions to the President very nicely:

How do you expect folks to continue to go to the mat for your agenda, when you so easily sacrifice our best and brightest at the whim of an illegitimate lynch mob? How do you expect the next generation to invest themselves in the political process when they see that despite their good works, they can be taken out over nonsense, especially when the double standard is so abundantly clear? How can you ask from us what you won’t do for us? And when will you realize that you cannot negotiate with terrorists?
