About this? It’s not like nobody knew that the Almighty Israel has nukes. But from reading around the blog–world, you’d think it was some kind of epic announcement. But the most asinine comment came from the King of the Ding-bat morning shows, “Fox and Friends”.
From “The Raw Story“..
“The extraordinary thing is a lot of people throughout the Mideast have assumed for a very long time that Israel had [nuclear weapons],” concluded Steve Doocy. “But nobody has ever said officially that they had it. So, here you have got this guy who was once upon a time the president of the United States doing just that. … He has just helped Iran.”
Let’s assume Iran didn’t “know” that the Almighty Israel had nukes. What’s going to happen? How does this help Iran? Again, I’m still not seeing why folks are upset about this. It sure doesn’t concern American soil.
“They are surrounded by powers with nuclear weapons – Pakistan to their east, the Russians to the north, the Israelis to the west and us in the Persian Gulf,” he told the Senate committee during his confirmation hearing.
Again, the selective outrage is deafening. How about not going after a fellow American, and going after people who spy on Americans. Oh, you haven’t heard?
Two former senior analysts for Aipac, Steven J. Rosen and Keith Weissman, are charged with violating the World War I-era Espionage Act when they told colleagues, journalists and Israeli Embassy officials information about Iran and Iraq they had learned from talking to high-level United States policymakers.
The. Selective. Outrage. Is. Deafening.
