Posted on WND front page: “Pentagon Pick: Bush ‘mindlessly’ supported Israel.”

New top adviser warns Obama may not give Jewish state ‘blank checks.’

Story excerpt: JERUSALEM – While President Bush was “blindly” and “mindlessly” supportive of Israel, President Obama may be less willing to give the Jewish state "blank checks," says Rosa Brooks, the Obama administration's new adviser to one of the most influential Pentagon officials.

Brooks will advise Michelle Fluornoy, the undersecretary of defense for policy, a position that wields enormous power over drafting U.S. military doctrine in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Until accepting her position earlier this month, Brooks, who did work on behalf of George Soros' philanthropic foundation, also served as a columnist for the Los Angeles Times. A WND review of her opinion pieces in the newspaper finds trends that defenders of the Jewish state may view as anti-Israel, including distorting history to seemingly whitewash Palestinian terrorism.

I must say that Obama is

I must say that Obama is looking a bit better on foreign policy than Bush. Looks like we might not invade Iran and Venezuela.

I’m just relieved that Mac and Payload didn’t get in.

But as far as the big Bama’s intentions… We’ll see.
