UNITED NATIONS – In an about face, the United States on Friday withdrew a U.N. resolution endorsing this week’s agreement by Israeli and Palestinian leaders to try to reach a Mideast peace settlement by the end of 2008, apparently after Israel objected.
Deputy Ambassador Alejandro Wolff informed the Security Council that the United States was pulling the resolution from consideration less than 24 hours after Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad introduced it and welcomed the “very positive” response from council members.
Well-informed diplomats said Israel, a close U.S. ally, did not want a resolution, which would bring the Security Council into the fledgling negotiations with the Palestinians. The diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said Khalilzad introduced the draft resolution without getting broad support from the Israelis, Palestinians and the Bush administration.

“By the rivers of Babylon
Where we sat down
And there we wept
When we remembered Zion
But the wicked
carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we sing
King Alfa’s song
In a strange land
Sing it out loud
Sing a song of freedom sister
Sing a song of freedom brother
We gotta sing and shout it
We gotta talk and shout it
Shout the song of freedom now…”

Photo ops aren’t too helpful when the whole thing breaks down so quickly. To be successful, enough time has to pass so that public attention is drawn away to some other issue so that when nothing comes after the photo op no one remembers or is any longer thinking about it anyway. What this proves to me is that Bush is still batting a 1000 at producing failures.
any chance georgie will get shot this time?
we had sadat and rabin.
