Bush Administration/Elliott Abrams Behind Israeli Attack on Lebanon?

Here's another example of a perspective, which is altogether lacking from the nation's traditional mainstream media. The Bush administration culpable for more mayhem and violence in the middle east? But no... surely there must be a good murder or arson to occupy the top of the page, or to take the lead television news story.

Something is drastically wrong with the USA, this article describes one part of the problem.

Gangster Diplomacy

Elliot Abrams in Jerusalem

Since he joined the Bush administration in 2002 as the chief Middle East adviser at the White House's National Security Council, Elliott Abrams has quietly pushed for a transformational Middle East policy with Israel at its center. If one U.S. official were to be blamed-aside from the president, vice president, and secretary of state-for the U.S. government's disastrous stance with Israel in the recent war, it would be Elliot Abrams. Perhaps more than any other member of Bush's foreign policy team, Abrams embodies the administration's zealous, ideological, and dangerously delusional vision of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East.

Abrams, a neoconservative who has dedicated himself to reshaping U.S. foreign policy since the mid-1970s, is the Bush administration's point man for Middle East transformation. According to Seymour Hersh writing in the August 21 New Yorker, Cheney's foreign policy staff and Abrams in early summer had signed off on an Israeli plan to wipe out Hezbollah.

  1. And, the mainstream media is delinquent for not including stories like this in their regular stories.

    I challenge you, journalists, to pick up the pieces and run with it. It is your job, rather, it is your duty to provide the public with a full accounting of what is happening to our country!

    Pull us out of this horrific nightmare that is the Bush administration run amok!
