    If you read NY Times editorials along with several of their columnists such as Roger Cohen, and of course much of the left-wing media, the story line has been "master manipulator and aggressive paranoid (fill in the blank: Israel, Netanyahu) is trying to goad the US into plunging the world into war to do Israel's dirty work vis a vis Iran." Now these leaks reveal that Arab governments have been exhorting the US to strike Iran even more so than Israel, and that Israel's paranoia is not so paranoid after all. I wonder how many of the knee-jerk anti-Israel types will realize what is before their eyes, or if their narrowness will still prevent them from missing it. And I wonder how many of these types, including the UNHRC, will still automatically accuse Israel of the usual war crime if it strikes or detains a Gaza "ambulance," when these leaks reveal how the whole Iran/Hezbollah/Hamas complex uses the Red Crescent and medical shipments as cover for arms shipments?
