  1. I think Jens feels remorse about Libya and has done a very good job overall as NATO Secretary General.
    He has not baited the Russians like the Dane Rasmussen did and has avoided us starting World War 3, and – as long as NATO returns to being a legitimate, *defensive* alliance – Jens’s deterrence-alliance initiatives into the Asia-Pacific helps stability there.

    In sum, I think he has good, caring judgment and feels strong responsibility for doing the right thing and would make an excellent Norges Bank governor.
