Another sign Obama is going to blame Jews for his Iran policy failures
AT has for some time been warning that President Obama is preparing to set up Jews and the "Israel Lobby" as scapegoats for the failure of his Iran policy to prevent the acquisition of nuclear weapons. Needless to say, potential catastrophe lurks when mullahs determined to bring about Armageddon acquire the means to plunge the world into nuclear warfare.
In the now famous 17,000 word New Yorker interview with the president, a few barely-noticed lines support our interpretation of what is to come. Greg Sargent of the Washington Post's Plum line blog noticed:
One other nugget from Obama's interview with the New Yorker's David Remnick has direct bearing on the Iran debate:
"Historically, there is hostility and suspicion toward Iran, not just among members of Congress but the American people," Obama said, adding that "members of Congress are very attentive to what Israel says on its security issues." He went on, "I don't think a new sanctions bill will reach my desk during this period, but, if it did, I would veto it and expect it to be sustained."
"Very attentive to what Israel says on its security issues"! Points for subtlety. That aside, with 58 co-sponsors, the bill really is within striking distance of a veto override.
Should that veto prevail and Iran pursue the path toward destruction that it has already vowed, we already know who will be blamed.
