Is Bush crazy? Here’s from a front-page article in the New York Sun on April 23:

Lakhdar Brahimi is the United Nations official that President Bush has now put in charge of establishing a new Iraqi government that will take over from America on July 1. But back in October of 1989, Mr. Brahimi was… the Arab League’s envoy in the Lebanese civil war and an author of an agreement known as the Taif Accord that encouraged Syria’s enforcement of peace in Lebanon. [Lebanese Prime Minister Michel] Aoun asked Mr. Brahimi how he could be sure that the Arab League would enforce the provisions of the Taif Accord that would guarantee Lebanese independence in the face of Syrian “peacekeepers….” “He laughed and smiled,” the former prime minister said. “He did not have too much to say. He knew very well what he was selling to me. He was doing his job. He was doing the job of the Arab League.”

Mr. Brahimi, 70, now works for the United Nations, but his remarks this week sounded as though they could have come straight from the Arab League’s headquarters in Cairo. On Wednesday he told the radio station France Inter, “There is no doubt that the great poison in the region is this Israeli policy of domination and the suffering imposed on the Palestinians, as well as the perception by the body of the population in the region, and beyond, of the injustice of this policy and the equally unjust support of the United States for this policy.” [NYSun]
