Charles Freeman fails the loyalty test Under attack for his insufficient devotion to Israel, cheap cialis super active online the long-time diplomat's appointment is withdrawn.
Glenn Greenwald

Obviously, cheap cialis super active online John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt are rabid, cheap cialis super active online hateful paranoids -- total bigots and anti-Semites -- for having suggested that there are powerful domestic political forces in the U.S. Cheap cialis super active online which enforce Israel-centric orthodoxies and make it politically impossible to question America's blind loyalty to Israel.  What irrational lunacy on their part:

Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Cheap cialis super active online Blair announced today that Ambassador Charles W. Cheap cialis super active online Freeman Jr. Cheap cialis super active online has requested that his selection to be Chairman of the National Intelligence Council not proceed. Cheap cialis super active online Director Blair accepted Ambassador Freeman’s decision with regret.

In situations like this, cheap cialis super active online it is often impossible to know whether the appointee really did voluntarily withdraw or whether he was forced out and is merely being allowed to say that he withdrew.   To his credit, cheap cialis super active online Adm. Cheap cialis super active online Blair was in the Senate this morning defending Freeman from the likes of Joe Lieberman, cheap cialis super active online but everything that is publicly known about Freeman makes it seem unlikely that he would have voluntarily withdrawn due to the shrieking criticisms directed at him.  If he were forced out -- and there's no basis for assuming he was until there's evidence for that -- then that reflects quite badly on the Obama administration's willingness to defy the Bill Kristols, cheap cialis super active online Marty Peretzes, cheap cialis super active online and National Reviews of the world when it comes to American policy towards the Middle East.

In the U.S., cheap cialis super active online you can advocate torture, cheap cialis super active online illegal spying, cheap cialis super active online and completely optional though murderous wars and be appointed to the highest positions. 

But you can't, cheap cialis super active online apparently, cheap cialis super active online criticize Israeli actions too much or question whether America's blind support for Israel should be re-examined.

UPDATE: Prior to the announcement that the Freeman appointment was terminated, cheap cialis super active online Max Blumenthal documented that the man leading the anti-Freeman assault was Steve Rosen, cheap cialis super active online the long-time AIPAC official currently on trial for violations of the Espionage Act in connection with the transmission of classified U.S. Cheap cialis super active online information intended for Israel. Cheap cialis super active online Blumenthal also quotes foreign policy analyst Chris Nelson as follows:

Freeman is stuck in the latest instance of the deadly power game long played here on what level of support for controversial Israeli government policies is a "requirement" for US public office. 

If Obama surrenders to the critics and orders [Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair] to rescind the Freeman appointment to chair the NIC, cheap cialis super active online it is difficult to see how he can properly exercise leverage, cheap cialis super active online when needed, cheap cialis super active online in his conduct of policy in the Middle East. Cheap cialis super active online That, cheap cialis super active online literally, cheap cialis super active online is how the experts see the stakes of the fight now under way.

Blumethal also suggested that right-wing Israel fanatics in the U.S. Cheap cialis super active online are particularly interested in controlling how intelligence is analyzed due to their anger over the NIE's 2007 conclusion that Iran had ceased its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

“It’s clear that Freeman isn’t going to be influenced by the lobby, cheap cialis super active online” Jim Lobe, cheap cialis super active online the Washington bureau chief of Inter Press Service, cheap cialis super active online remarked to me. Cheap cialis super active online “They don’t like people like that, cheap cialis super active online especially when they’re in charge of products like the NIE. Cheap cialis super active online So this is a very important test for them.”

Blumenthal further noted that the leader of the anti-Freeman crusade in the House, cheap cialis super active online Rep.  Mark Kirk, cheap cialis super active online is Congress' top recipient of AIPAC donations.   Identically, cheap cialis super active online Greg Sargent previously reported that, cheap cialis super active online in the Senate, cheap cialis super active online "concern" over Freeman was expressed by Sen. Cheap cialis super active online Chuck Schumer directly to Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

Does anyone doubt that it's far more permissible in American political culture to criticize actions of the American government than it is the actions of the Israeli Government? 

Isn't that rather odd, cheap cialis super active online and quite self-evidently destructive? Much more on the story at: http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2009/03/10/freeman/index.html
