├╝berorientalizmus?


America's failing in intelligence? A dearth of overorientalists.

Maybe that's why STRATFOR, NSA, CIA, and the State Department are among the groups that recruit Sanskrit students.

They both recognize the problem and exemplify it -- their desire for knowers of oriental languages is admirable, but wouldn't living languages be slightly more useful?
