  1. But has be resigned, or was he pushed?

    Note the eulogy from the White House spokesman who went out of his way to praise Ross for his work on the sanctions against Iran.

    And consider that somebody within the Obama Administration must have hatched the Cunning Plan of using Amano to sex up the IAEA reports on Iran.

    A Cunning Plan that now appears to be a monumental fiasco, since its outcome appears to that Russia is bringing Iran under its wing.

    You’d think that whoever was responsible for that stunningly misplaced policy advice would be shown the door.

    Oh, gosh, wadda surprise, Dennis just resigned……

  2. How to measure Ross’ Very Special Talents?

    I can do no better than to remind everyone that Ross is a man who couldn’t even get Netanyahu to agree to take twenty shiny-new, no-money-to-pay F-35 stealth fighters off his hands.

    And, let’s face it, if you can’t clinch THAT deal then you really have no business sitting down at the negotiating table.

  3. From the standpoint of Dennis Ross and the Likudniks it is truly matter of “mission accomplished”. They have prevented yet another administration from achieving any progress towards a comprehensive settlement. They have ensured that the billions of U.S. taxpayers’ dollars will continue to flow from the U.S. to Israel.

    There is little doubt that the U.S. will continue to exercise its veto in the UN Security Council at the behest of Israel. (It is in practice more Israel’s veto than the US’s.) Israel has been supplied by the U.S. with the latest bunker-buster bombs, and it is now free to bomb Iran at will without “coordinating” with the U.S. And most importantly, the illegal Israeli settlements (a/k/a “neighborhoods”) in East Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank (a/k/a “disputed territory”) are growing like well-fertilized weeds.

    Job well done, Dennis Ross and AIPAC! AIPAC can now devote itself to ingratiating itself with both sides in the upcoming presidential election, after which they can once again help staff the victor’s administration.

  4. The tragedy is of course that all this obtuse behavior will simply lead to more tragedy. AIPAC and all they represent are actually leading us all to a sadder and for them less influential future…which I personally think is a good thing, but can have severe repercussions for many people who are just leading their lives safely in the US
