Rahm Emanuel

So if the rumours are to be believed, the saviour of the world,  president-elect Brak Obama has appointed Rahm Emanuel as Chief of Staff. This man’s father was in Irgun. Irgun was a terrorist outfit  - an anti-arab terrorist outfit so that really doesn’t count in the eyes of Americans I would suspect. Mr Emanuel has also volunteered for the Israeli army back in 1991 ….

So a great start really for the man who is going to change things?! My less cynical mates tell me that Obama will curtail the usual US proclivities - warring, torturing, renditioning etc.  Yeah right.
