So yesterday, as was reported in AANS (Angry Arab News Service), the White House spokesperson sounded critical of Sharon's speech and threats. Today, a senior US official (most likely Condaleesa Rice) briefed the press and expressed praise for Sharon's threats. The US government, the official said, was quite "pleased" with Sharon's threats. He was also encouraged to issue more threats to Arabs. In fact, the US government today considers Sharon's speech to be a very positive development. Why not?
