Israel calls the shots in the final days of Bush administration?

 

olmert-and-rice

According to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert he forced the Bush administration to sit out a vote in the UN Security Council.

According to Olmert he called Bush and told Bush to reign in Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Now this could be a whole lot of bs from Olmert but the fact that he’s  willing to say this on the record shows that he has no fear of repercussions from the incoming administration and it really displays how powerless this Secretary of State has been in advancing peace between Israel and the Palestinians.  And in effect it reinforces the opinion of many out there that Rice has presided over a number of foreign policy failures/blunders.

Somehow, I don’t think the incoming Secretary of State , Hillary Clinton, will be as ineffective as  her predecessor.
