Leading Middle East Democracy to Thumb Nose at UN War Crimes Investigation

Israel is touted as a leading Middle East democracy, even after razing its democratic neighbor to the north in 2006 and pummeling Gaza in late 2008/early 2009. Senator Obama parroted the Israeli line on Lebanon and stayed remarkably quiet on Gaza as President elect.

The latest move by the shining ME democracy? Not cooperating in a United Nations War Crimes investigation. Cluster bombs, white phosphorous, holding 1.5 million people under siege in an active war zone. Someone should look into that.
