The U.N. on Gaza

In an article in Forbes, Anne Bayefsky comments:
Betrayal. No other word describes the reversal of American foreign policy that took place on the night of Jan. 8 when the U.S. refused to veto the Security Council resolution on Gaza.

A president whose friendship and alliance with Israel once appeared honest, perceptive and unshakable, decided two weeks before leaving office to throw Israel to the wolves. The resolution calls for a ceasefire in Gaza and does not even mention the word "Hamas."

I'm glad President Bush is leaving office. It is getting harder and harder to distinguish him from the Democrats. I find this failure to veto the U.N resolution on Gaza absolutely disgusting!
