Says it all!

According to this article from The Tablet, Stephen Walt (of Mearsheimer & Walt infamy) is Obama's eminence gris on the Middle East. If true, this explains it all: why Obama & Kerry have cosied up to the Ayatollahs; why they appear to be leaning so heavily on Israel to "agree" to an unacceptable (un)peace agreement; why Iran is continuing with their nuclear programme unstopped; and why the man brought in as the foreign affairs expert, Veep Joe Biden, has been sidelined on this matter.

If you disagree, please read the article and tell me why. If asked nicely, Snoopy may even publish another article on this thorny topic.

The article is a bit uneven, esp. on the factual side. I can agree that some of what Walt preaches seeped into the State Dept and WH, but it doesn't necessarily come from Walt. There are several "deep thinkers" on the roster that are closer to the chief's ear than Walt and preach the same.

Our president is a snake, which is one reason I prefer to call him Wormtongue. The appointment of Kerry, who never met a dictator he didn't like, was tipoff enough as to what was coming. Walt is just icing on the bitter cake.
