Obama, Israel & AIPAC: Together at Last
Jeffrey Goldberg, Bloomberg
From the Department of Supreme Ironies: President Barack Obama, who seeks to punish an Arab state for violating international norms on the use of weapons of mass destruction, is relying on the hawkish Republican senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, along with Aipac, the main pro-Israel lobbying group in Washington, to get his message across to Congress. I have to assume that George W. Bush is laughing today.
