Karen Huges is the Grown-up

In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. In the realm of wingnut hysteria, Hindrocket is the responsible one. And now, in the administration of clowns, we see that Karen Huges seems to be the grown-up by default. Karen Huges! Jesus wept...
' Claims that Israel has a green light to fight in Lebanon until it ousts Hezbollah are “outrageous,” a top aide to President Bush said.
In interviews over the weekend with Malaysian media, Karen Hughes, Bush’s envoy for public diplomacy in the Middle East, rejected Israeli Justice Minister Haim Ramon’s claim of U.S. authorization to wipe out Hezbollah.

“That is an outrageous statement,” Hughes said.

“It is false, and my understanding is the government of Israel has disavowed it.”

She compared Ramon to Hezbollah ministers in the Lebanese government who launched the initial July 12 attack on Israel “without the permission of the government of Lebanon.” '
Meanwhile in Ankara: "Twenty-five Turkish lawmakers have resigned since June from a parliamentary friendship group with Israeli colleagues in protest at the Jewish state's offensives in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Lebanon, parliamentary sources said Tuesday."

There's such a thing as the Turkey-Israeli friendship group that's one of the most popular in the Turkish assembly? Who know?
