Bush-whacked. Again.

Funny, the wording below (found here)is practically identical to the previous announcement of delay in moving the embassy to Jerusalem. And this previous announcement.

We've been sabotaged, Bush-whacked. Again.

What possible "national security interests" could override the truth of the Bible, of the sovereignty of Israel in its capital city? Whta, they'll rebomb a building? Kill more American servicemen, G-d forbid!, in Iraq?

Bush Again Delays Move of U.S. Embassy in Israel
President cites "national security interests" in his decision

President Bush suspended the move of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem for an additional six months December 14.

The U.S. Congress enacted legislation in 1995 calling for the relocation of the embassy to the city Israel claims as its capital, but former Presidents Clinton and Bush, citing "national security interests," both delayed implementation of the legislation.

Many in Washington believe that the move would be ill-received by Palestinians, who also see Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state, and that it would therefore undermine U.S. efforts to secure a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
