Order Nicocease No Rx Required

Charles Freeman fails the loyalty test Under attack for his insufficient devotion to Israel, order nicocease no rx required the long-time diplomat's appointment is withdrawn.
Glenn Greenwald

Obviously, order nicocease no rx required John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt are rabid, order nicocease no rx required hateful paranoids -- total bigots and anti-Semites -- for having suggested that there are powerful domestic political forces in the U.S. Order nicocease no rx required 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. Order nicocease no rx required Blair announced today that Ambassador Charles W. Order nicocease no rx required Freeman Jr. Order nicocease no rx required has requested that his selection to be Chairman of the National Intelligence Council not proceed. Order nicocease no rx required Director Blair accepted Ambassador Freeman’s decision with regret.

In situations like this, order nicocease no rx required 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, order nicocease no rx required Adm. Order nicocease no rx required Blair was in the Senate this morning defending Freeman from the likes of Joe Lieberman, order nicocease no rx required but everything that is publicly known about Freeman makes it seem unlikely that he would have voluntarily withdrawn due to the shrieking criticisms directed at him.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, order nicocease no rx required Marty Peretzes, order nicocease no rx required and National Reviews of the world when it comes to American policy towards the Middle East.

In the U.S., order nicocease no rx required you can advocate torture, order nicocease no rx required illegal spying, order nicocease no rx required and completely optional though murderous wars and be appointed to the highest positions. 

But you can't, order nicocease no rx required apparently, order nicocease no rx required 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, order nicocease no rx required Max Blumenthal documented that the man leading the anti-Freeman assault was Steve Rosen, order nicocease no rx required the long-time AIPAC official currently on trial for violations of the Espionage Act in connection with the transmission of classified U.S. Order nicocease no rx required information intended for Israel. Order nicocease no rx required 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, order nicocease no rx required it is difficult to see how he can properly exercise leverage, order nicocease no rx required when needed, order nicocease no rx required in his conduct of policy in the Middle East. Order nicocease no rx required That, order nicocease no rx required literally, order nicocease no rx required 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. Order nicocease no rx required 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, order nicocease no rx required” Jim Lobe, order nicocease no rx required the Washington bureau chief of Inter Press Service, order nicocease no rx required remarked to me. Order nicocease no rx required “They don’t like people like that, order nicocease no rx required especially when they’re in charge of products like the NIE. Order nicocease no rx required So this is a very important test for them.”

Blumenthal further noted that the leader of the anti-Freeman crusade in the House, order nicocease no rx required Rep.  Mark Kirk, order nicocease no rx required is Congress' top recipient of AIPAC donations.   Identically, order nicocease no rx required Greg Sargent previously reported that, order nicocease no rx required in the Senate, order nicocease no rx required "concern" over Freeman was expressed by Sen. Order nicocease no rx required 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, order nicocease no rx required and quite self-evidently destructive? Much more on the story at: http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2009/03/10/freeman/index.html
