    ...late, but he found them. Or was it all an elaborate ruse? A masterful stroke that allowed the US to take its "special relationship" with Israel out for a public ride at the seeming expense of Abbas, but the call was simply asking him to chill for a few days and counter-offer Bibi's extortion with the cold hard reality of Judge Richard Goldstone's balanced and extremely detailed report. I sense the hand of someone who has thoroughly thought this out and who has thought this type of action would play out over years, and not reacting to the crisis of the minute that Israeli local media is driven to for every "security" related happening. I find the Obama administration fascinating for what it is getting done under the radar, laying groundwork just like a farmer or a civil activist would.
