Martha Raddatz, who has been accurately reporting on the Iraqi war since day one, mentioned on "This Week" that the military is preparing to "draw-down" in Iraq.

She said that all the indications on the ground and from local Iraqi commanders is that the military is preparing to begin a withdrawal. I suspect something consistent with this.

BTW. Martha Raddatz has done nothing but outstanding reporting. She has apparently been promoted? to White House correspondent. My impression is that she works very hard at legitimately getting the whole story. Should be interesting.

I have a strong feeling that Americans should Support American Interests ONLY. Any country we help should be as a result of their interests corresponding to our interests.

Whether allying ourselves with Israel is in our National interest is up for legitimate debate it bothers me that a Conservative Radio Talk Show host in this area is going to be getting a "Friend of Israel" award.

I would be bothered regardless of what country, be it a "Friend of Great Britain award" or whatever. Again, in foreign policy Americans should support what is in America's National interests, and everything should flow from that. Which means that if it is in America's interest to support Israel, then I am all for it, BUT if it isn't in America's interests, then I am willing to accept that as well.

But by accepting this "Friend of Israel" award, it means that this talk show host supports Israel regardless of whether it is in our national interest or not. He is looking at it fromt he wrong direction. He is looking at it from the perspective of "a friend of Israel", not from the perspective of supporting America's interests and helping other countries only if it serves America's best interests.

Kirby Wilbur should be ashamed to accept the "American Jewish Congress Friend Of Israel Award" for it just says that he puts the interests of a foreign country ahead of America.

Look, I criticize naturalized citizens for doing this when it is them putting the interests of the country they came from ahead of that of their new country, America. Can I do any less for someone who was born and grew up in this country?
