“I believe that sooner or later the United States will have to develop some operational concept of the national interest. And when that happens, we will have to be, whether we like it or not, students of de Gaulle,”

from “The Generalist: On Charles de Gaulle” by Thomas Meaney, The Nation, September 12, 2012 (in the October 1, 2012, print edition).
