Clueless Condi

She is a disciple of Brent Scowcroft and James "F--- the Jews" Baker, so I guess that I should not be surprised that she now sounds exactly like them. They were part of the so-called "Realist" school of international affairs, and those "Realists" are part of the "blame Israel first" group. If there is ever a problem in the Middle East, Israel is blamed, the latest example of this knee-jerk reaction being Condoleeza Rice's criticisms that Israel was "expanding its settlements" in the West Bank:

Of course, this was published in the New York Times, whose bias against Israel is well-known, so one can certainly question whether Rice's comments were misstated or taken out of context. That said, the Bush 43 Administration has morphed into the Bush 41 Administration insofar as its policy towards Israel is concerned, so it is certainly not out of the question that Rice's comments were accurately reported by the NYT.
