the obama administration has outsourced united states national security interests to the corrupt un. now susan rice wants to pressure israel to do the same. the turkish flotilla fiasco could have been prevented had the administration taken the elementary precaution to call erdogan to discourage him from allowing the terror ship mavi marmara from setting sail from turkish port and under turkish flag. however, the impression one gets is that the us administration, at the highest levels, was unwilling to take such a step. it is doubtful that this administration is capable of fully realising the harm being done to its own interests. it is most definitely not in the interests of the united states that two allies such as turkey and israel become adversaries. this un sponsored "investigation" will only serve those who hope to diminish us sovereignty and, by extension, israel's ability to defend herself.
