NEW Snowden docs: Cash, Weapons and Surveillance: the U.S. is a Key Party to Every Israeli Attack

That covert support is squarely at odds with the posture of helpless detachment typically adopted by Obama officials and their supporters. President Obama, in his press conference on Friday, said "it is heartbreaking to see what's happening there," referring to the weeks of civilian deaths in Gaza ? "as if he's just a bystander, watching it all unfold," observed Brooklyn College Professor Corey Robin. Robin added: "Obama talks about Gaza as if it were a natural disaster, an uncontrollable biological event."

Each time Israel attacks Gaza and massacres its trapped civilian population ? at the end of 2008, in the fall of 2012, and now again this past month ? the same process repeats itself in both U.S. media and government circles: the U.S. government feeds Israel the weapons it uses and steadfastly defends its aggression both publicly and at the U.N.; the U.S. Congress unanimously enacts one resolution after the next to support and enable Israel; and then American media figures pretend that the Israeli attack has nothing to do with their country, that it's just some sort of unfortunately intractable, distant conflict between two equally intransigent foreign parties in response to which all decent Americans helplessly throw up their hands as though they bear no responsibility.
