Ambassador Michael Oren - Part One

I'm thinking of writing a series of posts on Israel's ambassador to the United States. He first came to my attention when I read his book on the Six-Day War. It is the best military analysis of the conflict I've read.

In 2005, long before he was ambassador, I tried through several channels to get in touch with him via email, over the timeline his book's narrative approach gives for the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty. My letters were polite. I never got a response.

I'm not quite sure Oren is in over his head by inches or meters after watching this 60 Minutes segment.

I'd say 'miles'. That dude scared the crap outta me.
