Meyrav Wurmser on the Qana massacre

Meyrav Wurmser is the wife of David Wurmser, who seems to be the primary intellect behind the Zionist Plan for the Middle East.  Meyrav Wurmser is a prominent neocon in her own right.  She is interviewed (or here, but I don’t think she is the “Principle Author of A Clean Break” as the title indicates) by Ynet.  The interview is just as amazing as you would think it would be – a combination of great insight and utter cluelessness – but I particularly liked the very end, where, in the context of discussing whether the U. S. would have allowed Israel to attack Syria, she honestly comments on something even the usually very honest Israelis have trouble admitting (my emphasis in red):

“No one would have stopped you. It was an American interest. They would have applauded you. Think why you received so much time and space to operate. Rice was in the region and Israel embarrassed her with Qana, and still Israel got more time. Why aren't they reading the map correctly in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem?”

I doubt we’ll see too many neocon memoirs about their time running American foreign policy, as such admissions could be used as evidence in American treason trials, or in international war crimes trials.
