Do we actually pay State Dept. officials for this? by E.C. Fenig

The day after the massacre of eight unarmed teen aged rabbinical students celebrating a minor holiday, the US State Department Blog asks

Should the U.S. Engage Hamas in the Peace Process Between the Israelis and Palestinians?

Duh?  Whaddaya think?  Reward them for slaughter, punish them for acting civilized?

For further elucidation Gateway Pundit suggests that Secretary of State Rice and the entire State Department should read

Barry Rubin explains to the US State Department why there is a Hamas-Israel War. 

Ever clueless, Rice

asks Egypt to hold talks with Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

So she wants Egypt to commit suicide also.  Such balance.
