Gratuitous Promotion of Family Members

My twin has a blog entry on the recent Israeli-Hezbollah prisoner swap which I strongly recommend reading. Aaron argues that the swap is a bad thing for the rule of law. I don't agree with the entry entirely. For example, I think he overestimates how much the swap damages U.N. authority and credibility (I don't think the U.N. has enough to distance to fall for this to matter much) and have a few other small criticisms but it is a thought provoking piece that you should check out.

Edit: I modified the above slightly to reflect that Aaron is arguing that the swap is bad for international rule of law rather than necessarily bad overall.
