1.  While Gates is a major perp, he’s still right about this:

“Robert Gates Says Israel Is an Ungrateful Ally

Gates coldly laid out the many steps the administration has taken to guarantee Israel’s security — access to top- quality weapons, assistance developing missile-defense systems, high-level intelligence sharing — and then stated bluntly that the U.S. has received nothing in return, particularly with regard to the peace process.

Senior administration officials told me that Gates argued to the president directly that Netanyahu is not only ungrateful, but also endangering his country by refusing to grapple with Israel’s growing isolation and with the demographic challenges it faces if it keeps control of the West Bank. According to these sources, Gates’s analysis met with no resistance from other members of the committee. ”

2.  “Mexico Fades

An Intrusion of Reality – Never a Good Thing

Things change, usually for the worse, and always against the innocent.”
