Considering the extraordinary events in Palestine in recent weeks, you might think that the ousting of Fatah from Gaza by Hamas would prove President Bush's "efforts" to bring peace and constitute the two state solution have been nothing short of a disaster.
The White House automatic talking machine clears the air :
Asked today whether the Bush administration "feels any responsibility" for the split among Palestinians, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said that what reporters "really need to be thinking about" is that "the president of the United States did not bind people's hands behind their back and throw them from rooftops. The president of the United States did not masquerade around with masks pulled over the face and slay people who disagreed with Hamas."Well, that's good to hear.
But what about the whole two state solution thing?
