President George Orwell Obama, and New Books from McCarthy and Schoenfeld

Tuesday, June 1, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Jake Tapper is reporting that ” there won’t be any daylight between the US and Israel in the aftermath of the incident on the flotilla yesterday, which resulted in the deaths of 10 activists.”

This after a Security Council resolution condemning Israel. The White House’s absurd spin is that the resolution could only have gotten worse with time. What, was the U.S. veto authority on the clock?

The U.S. had no excuse to join in that resolution, but the president’s reflexive, anti-Israel bias allowed the U.S. to join the other Security Council members in condemning Israel’s right to maintain the blockade. Asnew details emerge on the group behind the provocation, the criticism of the president’s decision should increase, not decline.

Has the United States ever –since the founding of the State of Israel– joined in a resolution condemning Israel within one day of the incident giving rise to the resolution? How often has the United States condemned Israel at all using this forum and this means? I’d like any pointer to a comprehensive source on this.

I will discuss on today’s show with Michael Barone, Mike Allen, John McIntyre, Andrew McCarthy and Gabriel Schoenfeld.

McCarthy and Schoenfeld both have important new books out that should be read widely and across the entire political spectrum.

McCarthy’s is The Grand Jihand: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America.

Schoenfeld’s is Necessary Secrets: National Security, the Media and the Rule of Law
