You don't say

AP actually titled a story "Mideast May Again Become Major U.S. Issue." Obviosly, we haven't been concerned at all about what goes on there. That's why Iraq has been the primary campaign issue.

AP hastily inserts a Kerry campaign promise: "We'll do a better job of protecting the state of Israel."

And a word from an "expert":

Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was former President Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, said in an Associated Press interview that "any administration will have to come to terms with the fact the absence of progress on the Israel-Palestinian peace front contributes to intensified conflict and hostility."

Does the label "President Jimmy Carter's national security adviser" sound ironic to you too? I was so distracted I missed what he actually said, so I had to go back and read it again. I think he used too many words for "I don't have a clue."

And finally, there is this:

Richard Holbrooke, who advises Kerry on foreign policy and could be his secretary of state, told The Jewish Telegraphic Agency this week that Kerry would appoint an envoy to the region not to force Israel to make concessions but to pressure Arab governments to stop sponsoring terror.

I'm sure that will work. IF Kerry is elected.
