Today I was in a bookstore and I came across a book who’s title really caught my eye, “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.” I made a note of its authors and when I returned home I did some “googling.” I was able to find more about their book but equally important I was able to find and watch an interesting interview that was conducted at Berkeley in California.
I first heard this topic broached by Scott Ritter a couple of years ago and it made sense then. I had intuited as much on my own watching the news and watching the agreement or consensus that all U.S. politicians regardless of how disparate their views might be on other subjects. I’m hoping that I’m serving the public interest by suggesting that this is a must see interview and I hope that a more serious debate ensues throughout our country as a whole.
