In the Presidential Medal of Freedom awards yesterday President Obama misspoke and referred to “Polish death camps” when referring to Nazi German death camps in Poland. He’s now apologized. But Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski, who has very conservative politics and a habit of playing in US politics, has taken the opportunity to attack the President for his “ignorance and incompetence,” in other words, playing from the GOP playbook. (Sikorski is a one time columnist for the National Review, fellow at AEI and advisor to Rupert Murdoch.)
