    appears to think that our elected officials should be unaccountable to the electorate. The fact is a greater number of people are looking forward to seeing what the government has been up to in our name, than those who are against it (usually members of the government with the ability to garner airtime in the media. I for one want to know what our government has been doing on behalf of Israel, I want to know where the origins of Saddam Hussein giving Ozzy Bin Laden WMD's came from. I want to see what lobbying Israel did after 9/11, what Israel lobbying is occuring to persuade the US to go to war in Iran. Uncomfortable questions for Israel, but our elected officials need to be reminded they serve us every now and again.
