According to former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, some members of Congress have received quite the windfall.
Brzezinski has both praise and criticism for the president: “He was an improvement by a very large score over his predecessor, but he could have been better.” He thinks the Obama administration “should have stuck to its guns in promoting a fair settlement” in the Middle East. A longtime foe of Israel’s partisans in the United States, he says the Obama team “fumbled by getting outmaneuvered by the Israelis.” Then he gets blunter: “Domestic politics interceded: The Israelis have a lot of influence with Congress, and in some cases they are able to buy influence.”
When you take away the not so subtle “diplotalk” Mika’s daddy was saying, “Those rich Jews have bribed their way into controlling Congress!”
This is more than a story of anti-semitism, it is an educational story. Remember this quote from then Senator Obama?
Brzezinski is someone I have learned an immense amount from”, and “one of our most outstanding scholars and thinkers” —Senator Barack Obama
Say what you want about the president’s policies, but you can’t say he isn’t a good student.
