    You are implying that Leahy made a flip over, but if you would have read the article properly you could have seen that this is not the case at all. Leahy was the principle sponsor of a 1997 bill prohibiting the USA from providing assistance or funding to foreign military units suspected of human rights abuses or war cxrimes. Obviously Leahy has the courage of his convictions and defends the same principle when the suspected human rights abusers are Israeli military personnel. He must know that by doing this he will risk the ire of the pro-Israel lobby. In today's USA that takes guts. I have good wine in my cellar and the Leahy vintage of 1997 has aged beautifully.

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
