With President Obama’s drone strikes and assassination lists coming under increasing scrutiny from the press and U.S. Senate; and John Brennan coming in for some rough questioning by overly inquisitive solons, I have the perfect solution: hire Israel to do take over the job. We’ve privatized garbage collection, prisons, even police and firefighting. Why not counter terror?
It’s perfect: worried about waterboarding presenting embarrassing moments before a senate committee? Want to get rid of some potentially incriminating video footage of terror suspects being tortured? You know nothing about it. Our Israeli friends took care of everything. We’ll have privatized the most annoying, troublesome aspects of our foreign policy to our friends in Tel Aviv.
It’s not a problem for them since ethics are a thing of the past as far as Israel is concerned. Torture? No problem. We do it all the time. Need to get rid of a pesky Arab terrorist? Got you covered. Worried about civilians getting caught in the cross hairs? Not to worry. We can handle it for you. They never existed.
Conscience is a thing of the past. Well, I should say as far as Arabs are concerned. Jews are a different story. For them, Israel still retains some moral stirrings…as long as they’re not useful as cover in an assassination plot. Then endangering Jews too can be justified.
