George W. Bush said both before and after the Palestine elections of 2006 that they were the fairest and most well run elections held in the Middle East outside of Israel.
“The people made their choice,” Bush said.
Now, Liz Cheney — who was a senior official at the Department of State at the time of those elections — is saying that the Palestinians weren’t ready for the elections and that they were a mistake.
She revealed this in a testy exchange with Arianna Huffington.
I guess elections are only good if one gets the stacked deck outcome that neocons want.
