Neocons and Israel and a parting of ways

From Politico‘s Ben Smith:

One of the most remarkable features of the American response to the Egypt crisis has been its one-sidedness.The longtime, loyal American ally Hosni Mubarak turns out to have virtually no support here, from Capitol Hill — where just a handful of Republican backbenchers have called on Obama to support him — to the foreign policy establishment where, after Les Gelb and John Bolton, there have been few voices rallying Obama to his defense.

I shall wait here holding my breath for the apologies from the left (and some on the right), for accusing the neocons of being in thrall to Jerusalem.
