    Well, Steve, I’ve got to hand it to you: a beltway conference on Palestine that includes and *actual Palestinian* on the panel. Good work.


  2. Wordie says:

    Steve: It’s great that you’re particpating in conferences such as this one, and bringing us the reports on them. Keep up the good work. Thank you.

    Oh, and by the way, it also exposes Waxman as a token bulldog, tasked to growl and bark, but never to bite.

    Steve, Washington may suffer earth tremors in the near future, if any of the networks decide to take Sibel Edmonds up on her offer to tell all, in direct contempt of our government’s efforts to silence her.
    I hope you are following this, because what little info this outsider peon has been able to latch onto tells me that there is not one single facet of American foreign policy that will not be exposed as corrupted and treasonously manipulated by high ranking members of both parties.
    Obviously, our government cannot allow Sibel to tell the truth, nor will our MSM propagandists provide her with a forum.
    Watch closely, because if she is truly prepared to speak openly, in depth and publically, she will be killed, or immediately incarcerated, probably in one of Cheney’s overseas gulags.
    Sorry for contaminating one of your threads with this off topic snippet, but there is no more important a story than the one Sibel Edmonds has to tell, because it lies bare the charade we once believed was a “representative government” working in its citizen’s best interests.

    Events like this promise to be much more worthwhile than the Anapolis conference, which will be a total joke, organized by the supremely incompetent Condi Rice. Nonetheless, Anapolis may accomplish something in a perverse sort of way:
    Not that the corporate media will notice…

    Thank you, Steve, for hosting an event that accords the Palestinians as a real people, instead of as Israeli “problem.”
