public wariness

Since it's probably already in my FBI file, I confess to being a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. They have interesting speakers and decent food, so I keep paying my dues.

This week the Council released another study of public opinion on foreign affairs. This one finds hints of growing isolationist sentiment among the U.S. public -- not surprising, in view of disenchantment over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and concerns over the economy. The trends will probably reinforce caution among policymakers.
