BLABBERMOUTH:

Netanyahu 'admits Israeli strike' (BBC, 9/20/07)

The Israeli opposition leader, Binyamin Netanyahu, has made the first apparent admission of Israel's involvement in an alleged air strike against Syria.

In a live interview on Israeli TV, Mr Netanyahu said he had congratulated Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on the raid.

"I was a partner in the issue from the start, and I gave my backing," he said.


His resemblance to Newt Gingrich just now occurs to me.

Pardon my youth, but what is the Newt tie in?

Thanks

megalomania.

oj, why doesn't he remind you of Clinton whom he more closely resembles.

I used to have a big crush on Benji, but alas, he's proved to be just another slick pol.

Recall that Newt -- who likewise never knew when to shut up -- was also bamboozled by Clinton in negotiations.
