Learning what actually transpired during Israel's attack on the Gaza Flotilla was apparently of little interest to the majority of congress which signed a letter in its defense.
Israel has put together a committee to look into its recent flotilla attack. Is Washington's support for this less-than-independent inquiry a quid pro quo for Israel's reducing its blockade of Gaza?
Rhetoric and bombast can create its own reality and lead to a crisis.
Instead of pinning the blame on Israel for flotilla tragedy, congressional Democrats are leaping to Israel's defense.
