The Gaza Bombshell
Go read the article but here are the facts in a nutshell:
- The administration demanded that elections be held in Palestine, the Democracy thing you know.
- Hamas won 56 percent of the seats in the Legislative Council which took everyone in the administration by surprise. They must not have been listening to Rumsfeld when he said Democracy is messy.
- The Bush administration told the Abbas to dislove the recently elected government and declare Marshall law.
- They then armed his party, Fatah.
- When word of this leaked out the result was a civil war which Hamas won.
- Hamas confiscated most of the US supplied weapons are are now using them to shoot at Israelis.
