UNZ Columnist Philip Giraldi “Executive Director of the Council for the National Interest, a group that advocates for more even handed policies by the U.S. government in the Middle East”, supports less U.S. involvement in Israel and the Middle East. He should tell that to the families of the victims of 9/11. Giraldi is fluent in Turkish, Italian, German, and Spanish. Too bad he never ingested American History.
Anyone who believes 9/11 was America’s fault, as Giraldi does, if his own writing is to be believed, is a “jihad denier”. America admittedly supports Israel’s Right To Exist as should the rest of the world but Giraldi and his CNI was condemned by Israel for his/their anti-Israel attitude and actions.
Giraldi criticized Obama’s SOTU address for stating America is/should be the leader of the world.
UNZ Review may be cleverly playing a double game by publishing Giraldi to show his extreme Left Jihad Support.
