The rest of the country has long known that things are a bit different “inside the beltway.” But a new and most unusual wrinkle has emerged from the Obama Administration’s rush to war. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the powerful pro-Israel lobby, is now being seen as caught between a rock and a hard place.
But this time it’s different, pundits are quick to point out. AIPAC’s previous defeats came when the lobby opposed the President. Now, AIPAC might just go down with President Obama.
