...is Barack Obama's Middle East advisor?
Well, sort of. Robert Malley, the advisor in question, once served as such, as Ed Lasky reports in a must-read essay posted at The American Thinker. Of hackle-rasing parentage--Malley's Syrian-born father made a career out of anti-Western, pro-PLO advocacy and became a friend of Arafat's at the height of PLO terrorism--Robert Malley, funded in part by anti-US, anti-Israel billionaire George Soros, espouses radical policies of engagement with America's enemies (Hamas, Hezbollah, Moqtada al-Sadr, Syria, etc.) and disengagement with America's allies (chiefly Israel).
Next time Obama sounds off about "hope" someone should ask him about Malley.
