Autonomy advocate, Holocaust survivor Tom Lantos dies

Not to turn this blog into a list of deaths and attempted murders, but autonomy proponent and congressman Tom Lantos (D-NY) died today. He was one of the first representatives to sign a letter supporting Morocco's autonomy proposal, but his obituary says he was good on other human rights issues.


  1. Stephen Zunes has a very good article in Foreign Policy in Focus titled "Lantos' Tarnished Legacy."
