"Criticisms I Wouldn’t Have Made"

One of Rudy Giuliani’s foreign policy advisors is Martin Kramer (about which more later), who has a blog called “the Sandbox” from which he propounds his view that the problem with US Middle East policy is that it’s unduly influenced by people who are knowledgeable about the Middle East, and insufficiently under the thumb of people like Kramer who recognize that the only thing these brutes understand is force. At any rate, from Kramer’s sidebar I followed a link to Eli Lake’s New York Sun article in which Giuliani criticizes Bush’s foreign policy for being too favorable to the Palestinians.

This is, perhaps, not entirely unexpected from a man whose entire foreign policy resume consists of having been rude to Yasser Arafat once, but still: It’s inane.
