I’m appalled that Martin Indyk would say that Romney consulting with Bibi about how to handle a question or how to behave diplomatically regarding statements about the Palestinians would imply that Mr. Romney would “subcontract Middle East Policy” to Mr. Netanyahu. What an irresponsible comment! To infer that Israel would be able to dictate American foreign policy if Mr. Romney becomes president and to imply that Mr. Romney would defer to Mr. Netanyahu regarding American foreign policy is an underhanded comment, totally uncalled for, and dangerous to boot. What a thing to say!

Gee, I must have missed the NYT expose in the runup to the 2008 election noting Obama’s friendships with Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and the person to whom he has obviously subcontracted out his Middle East policy: Rashid Khalidi.

The NYT is nothing if not predictable.
