Well, That Didn't Take Long

Arafat is already reneging on his agreement to turn over all the prisoners to U.S. custody.

What's really funny is people thought a tin pot dictator would keep his word?

Repulsive. I feel dirty for living a republic that would stoop to deal with his likes.

Who expected anything else? "He always plays the double-cross, lies even if you ask him what time it is, so that you can never trust him."

I'm shocked, shocked that Y.A. would lie and double deal. WTF do these guys at State think he would do? I think that Indian tribes have a better track record with the US government than Israel has with Y.A.

My illusions have been shattered! I'm sending back my Arafat Finally Keeps His Word Commemorative Plate!

They must wear high waders in the State Department, to get through all that bullshit every day.

The notion of putting American guards in PA territory always seemed totally mad to me. State must have offered it with the assumption that it would never really happen. The proposal's true purpose, currently being achieved, is to make it absolutely clear even to Europeans that Arafat is useless.

State offered the deal because if it worked they would get the credit and if it were to fail disasterously for those American military personnel then DOD gets the blame.
