US Distances Itself Publicly From Israeli Drive for Iran War

03-07-2008 23:59

I'd love to believe that there are some in congress, the military, and the executive who would be willing to throw cold water on such foolishness, but unfortunately, considering the stranglehold Israel has over this government, that's not about to happen.
