Interesting Timing

The Kennedy School put out a report on Israeli influence in US foreign policy. I hear the report isn't getting much publicity, especially in the corporate media. How surprising! However, there is some mainstream reporting.

Then there's this enlightening quotation from the Introduction,
importantly, saying that Israel and the United States are united by a shared terrorist threat has the causal relationship backwards: rather, the United States has a terrorism problem in good part because it is so closely allied with Israel, not the other way around.

What's really funny is that if you Google, "Israel lobby report," today you get several hundred articles bashing the report, as opposed to about a dozen reporting on the research itself.
