20 Years Ago Today The Berlin Wall Fell

Wizbang has a delightful account of the day a mundane news conference turned into a freedom free for all.

I believe we should take great pleasure in the fact that perhaps the single greatest act of liberation during my lifetime came about as the result of a screw-up by a bureaucrat acting as an agent of one of the most repressive Communist regimes in human history.

Secretary of State Clinton is in Germany today, to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

I don't think much of Hillary Clinton, but one thing I do know. If she had been President, she would have been there today as President. I think she is proud to be there. So good on her for that.
