AN OASIS IN A WORLD OF HACKS, HUSTLERS, AND HIRED SPIN

Well, if it were general public knowledge that Israel spies on the US it might become difficult to maintain the fiction that Israel=Good. People might begin to realize that the Israel lobby plays the US like a fiddle.Part of maintaining influence is keeping that influence discreet. The US government is not the only large entity that Israel hold sway over.
well at least the NY times had 1 article on the trial:http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/03/washington/03aipac.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=aipac+and+trial&st=nyt&oref=slogin
I may be totally wrong, but the whole idea of foreign countries lobbying our Representatives with big bucks (knowing our Reps love money over everything else) seems very dangerous. I am sure our Reps would sell our country, including national security, for their personal gains.Suppose, in a way it could be worse. A public hearing could take place (FCC), and a corporation (Comcast) could pay people off the streets to fill the seats, so media and critics couldn't attend.
Thanks for your post, very useful information. Модульные домики
