New report by Republicans Robert Dole, Howard Baker and Democrats Tom Daschle and George Mitchell warns the next administration that it “might have little time and fewer options to deal with this threat.” Both Obama’s top Middle East adviser Dennis Ross and McCain’s Dan Coats are authors of the report.
Col. Pat Lang on Dennis Ross:
Dennis Ross is a principle figure in an Israeli think-tank dedicated in its mission statement to the advancement of the interests of the Jewish People. When he took that position he was asked if it was seemly for a former US Ambassador who more or less ran the Peace Process as a guarantor of US neutrality to accept such a role. His reply was that he thought it was. After all, he said “they are my people.” I suppose Palestinians could be forgiven for doubting that he was ever neutral.
