    Michael Savage brought up this good question on his show today. James Baker has connections with Saudi Arabia because his firm, Baker Botts, is defending the Saudis in a post 9-11 lawsuit for like a trillion dollars. James Baker is a senior member of Baker Botts. Savage also said GWB worked for Botts when he was young and in the mailroom. Then there's the Carlyle connection. Baker is of course a lobbyist for the oil industry and has an office in the White House.

    Exactly who's interests are really being served by this Iraq panel with James Baker heading it up? :wtf:

    I've NEVER had any use for James Baker.

    Something about the man just bothers me.

    Certainly not Americas'. This whole Iraq panel thing stinks to high heaven. This message board could have strung together a bunch of suggestions and done just as well. I hope someone has some time to waste to find out what's really motivating the bozos.
    What do you know---thier collection of ideas is a best seller already.

    This plan sucks. It sucks, it sucks, it sucks.


    And just look at exactly what those suggestions were:

    Land for peace didn't work out so well in Gaza, but that's all Baker really proposes here. And it's not exactly as if Syria can OR will influence Hamas to "help" the outlaw Zionist state, or that Abu Mazen actually CARES for "peace".

    This should be a blueprint of what NOT to do in the Middle East.

    Just what I was thinking on the other thread...Israel is the only ticket we have for negotiations. Liberals don't care, they are really anti-semite anyway, except when Mel Gibson mouths off.
