Former prime minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday that the Bush administration had assured him that the United States would be willing to absorb some 100,000 Palestinian refugees immediately as American citizens, should Israel reach a permanent settlement with the Palestinian Authority.
Quartet Middle East Envoy Tony Blair referred to a secret peace deal between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas.
Since then Blair ran like a frightened child from people trying to serve him a war crime indictment and Olmert has been charged with corruption.
It just happens Tony Blair and Ehud Olmert are selling books. What didn't make Tony's book? His trading the Lockerbie bomber for BP's access to Libyan oil fields. Also omitted, his revelation that Israel would change strategy on Gaza, with the approval of Obama's Hillary Clinton and General James Jones. Bombs fell within a week.
Olmert, Blair and Bush made war their signature strategy. Little has changed with their replacements.
