High-stakes gambling

The Newsday editorial board describes what’s on the line in the Antigua gambling case:

The organization’s credibility is on the line. It can’t risk the rap that it aggressively enforces trade rules against small nations but timidly allows the world’s economic powerhouse to skate. The integrity of the United States is also at issue. This country can’t respect trade rules that benefit us and ignore those that don’t without undermining valuable free trade agreements.
