In case you were wondering who is making US foreign policy decisions about issues which affect us deeply:
At the United Nations, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was cobbling together a proposal for an international panel to investigate the deadly raid.
The panel would include representatives from Turkey and Israel, or at least one member each to represent their interests, and two or three others selected from a list assembled by Mr. Ban, diplomats said.
Mr. Ban plans to pitch the plan to Israel and Turkey over the weekend, the diplomats said, and the United States has said it will sign off on it once Israel accepts it.
Here's a hint: it's not the United States.

  1. Well, clearly so in this case.

    It's only to be expected that the USA should punt on this one. Israel is a total third rail. The US just has no moral high ground any more. So, give it to the Chinks; they'll launder it good.
