Remember when Jesse Jackson (whose son Jesse Jr., before taking a whirl at Blago Senate Lotto, was then serving as an Obama campaign co-chairman) said, basically, it was curtains for Israel in an Obama White House? And then when the Obama campaign doth protested a whole lot? Well, Jesse was right on the money (and literally, in a way).
Read Ed Lasky's important analysis of how Obamatik will shape up in the Middle East under Israel-unfriendly NCS advisor Gen. James Jones. It opens:
Barack Obama is centralizing power in the White House, marginalizing Hillary Clinton and the State Department, while offering ever-clearer signs that Israel’s status as a close American ally is imperiled. Beneath what appears to be obscure bureaucratic maneuvers lies an apparent significant shift in America’s Middle East policy.
Guess who's getting significantly shifted?
