After reading mistermix’s post about Obama and Sarkozy stating the obvious about Netanyahu, I went to check my favorite Likud party media outlets — TNR, Kaplan, Jeffrey Goldberg. Goldberg and TNR (including even Peretz) haven’t written about it, Jackson Diehl of Kaplan has actually written a column asking why Obama and Sarkozy would say such a mean thing about such a nice guy as Binny.
Who does Diehl think he’s writing for at this point? Is there anyone who reads his stuff who doesn’t think he’s a shameless AIPAC/Likud party shill? Even the Weekly Standard isn’t interested in this stupid story, yet even the liberal Washington Post editorial board is using it as a pretext to bash Obama’s policy on the Middle East. What an embarrassment that once proud paper has become.
