I am going to outsource my year in review wrap-up to Jeffrey Laurenti of the Century Foundation.

2010 Year in Review: Jeffrey Laurenti on International Affairs from Century Foundation on Vimeo.

In the “worst” side of the ledger, I would add that this was a really bad year in natural disasters.  Everyone knows about the Haiti earthquake and Pakistani floods. But in a stretch of Western Africa from the Central African Republic to parts of Chad, Niger and Benin there was combination of draught and biblical flooding that fomented a monstrous food crisis.  2010 was a cruel year for this region.
