I can’t really improve on this superb post by occasional TAC contributor Glenn Greenwald. Among the main points: how the slavish, every T crossed and I dotted adhesion to the Israeli line by virtually every member of Congress is not the position desired by a majority of the American people. And he notes that Washington rushed shipments of cluster bombs to Israel in time for this offensive. The idea that America isn’t implicated, and won’t pay a price, for Tel Aviv’s slaughter of innocents is terribly naive. Make sure to follow the link to Nir Rosen’s powerful, and oh so true, column on the matter.
