Washington Free Beacon: When it came to Israel, Drunk Nixon was better than Sober Obama
Strangely the tape of Nixon ordering the chairman of the joint chiefs to “get off your ass” and get the planes airborne is not played or written about as the Watergate tapes are. “Use every [plane] we have—everything that will fly,” Nixon can be heard barking in exasperation.Given her performance with Ambassador Stevens, Israel better not be hoping for Hillary to support them in a crisis...apparently not!
Nixon’s airlift turned the tide for Israel. Under “Operation Nickel Grass” 567 missions were flown, delivering more than 22,000 tons of supplies, and an additional 90,000 tons were delivered to Israel by sea—all told $121 million in weapons and bullets.
Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir would admit that upon hearing of the airlift during a cabinet meeting, she began to cry. Chaim Herzog, Israel’s sixth president, said, “He supplied arms and unflinching support when our very existence would have been in danger without them.” Yitzhak Rabin, then serving as Israel’s ambassador in Washington, said in an Israeli radio interview that no president in American history had been more committed to Israel’s security than Richard Nixon.
Nixon had little tolerance for alcohol and there is little question that he sometimes drank to excess. When it comes to Israel, however, Nixon drunk is better than Obama sober.
Rush Limbaugh: Released emails show the 'smartest woman in the world' is actually an idiot
More Email Mess For Hillary and Ted Cruz melts Katie Couric's Mind when he reveals it was Hillary who started Obama birther rumors (give Hillary credit, she can be shrewd and she hired the slimiest political consultants)
Mother Jones: An inside look how Hillary plays the media...
AoSHQ: Hillary edited, redacted, her emails (it helps politically to do that if you can get away with it)
