The Israeli military attacks an aid ship in international waters and kills at least 10 people.

Naturally, Israel is the victim.

As usual, Glenn Greenwald has some of the best reporting and analysis on the attack here. Gideon Levy of Haaretz also has an excellent piece.

Mossad chief Meir Dagan admitted to a committee of the Knesset today that Israel “is progressively becoming a burden on the United States.”

But I doubt you’ll be hearing about his observation in American papers and television reports.

I expect the IDF attack will bring out the best both in American politicians and the American media.

What is the most sycophantic defense you have seen of the attack on the aid ship?
