CAN THEY REALLY FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE WITH HILLARY...:

Obama adviser worries Israel supporters (Ben Smith, Sep 12, 2007, Politico)

Brzezinski, 79, stepped into the crossfire this summer when he published an essay in the summer issue of the journal Foreign Policy, defending a controversial new book about the power of the “Israel Lobby” in American politics.

The book’s authors, Harvard’s Stephen Walt and the University of Chicago’s John Mearsheimer, thanked him for his “incisive defense.”

But the article inserted him into one of the most heated debates in America-Israel politics, a bitter dispute about whether the authors’ claims smacked of bigotry, whether their critics are – as Brzezinski put it — “McCarthyite.”

“It is a tremendous mistake for Barack Obama to select as a foreign policy adviser the one person in public life who has chosen to support a bigoted book,” said Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, one of the most visible critics of the Walt and Mearsheimer volume, titled “The Israel Lobby.”


...given accusations that she's personally antiSemitic and the way the last Clinton Administration sided with Arafat against Israel?

The man was responsible for the original General Intelligence/ISI directed arms pipeline to the
Mujahadeen that gave us Al Queda & the Taliban,
and the Iraq card play that is behind the instability in Iraq between the Shia & Sunni. So he's a great choice to give advice.

The last Presidential candidate Zbig attached himself to early was some guy named Carter. Feel better?

And the way St.Hillary!'s foreign policy inner circle consists of retrreads from the end of the previous Clinton administration: Berger, Albright and Holbrooke. Along with Mr.Hsu, already a Rodham administration looks like little more than Slick Willy's third term. Which makes one wonder who was really running things for the final two or three post-impeachment years.

What do you mean, the final two or three years?

Bill's the face, she's the brains.
