NYC District Attorney Retiring At 90


Talk about staying power. Talk about a successful career. When you are 90 and leaving a job you can pretty much say anything you want about anything you want. WSJ interviews Robert Morgenthau.

Worth a read.

'Everyone has dropped the ball on [Iran sanctions]. The president is smoking pot or something if he thinks that being nice to these guys is going to get him anywhere," Mr. Morgenthau says. He says economic sanctions can "have significant impact" because most of Iran's enablers are not terrorists, just people "trying to make a buck. . . . They don't enjoy being the focus of an investigation." The D.A. argues that more aggressive federal enforcement of existing sanctions, plus a new effort to restrict Iran's gasoline imports, could make life very difficult for a regime that is under increasing pressure from its own citizens.
