Politicians seek U.S. probe of bulldozer death Rep. Robin Hayes, R-N.C., of Concord is not supporting either bill, said spokesman Jonathan Felts. "Regrettably, rather than working for a solution, both of these bills seem to be more focused on assigning blame for the violence that is hindering the peace process," Felts said. Who exactly does Hayes represent, Israel or Americans? I'm confused.

`It's a terrible thing, living with the knowledge that you crushed our daughter'

From 4/15 - US dissatisfied with Israeli probe into death of American peace activist - I don't know how I missed this one but it was not anywhere near the front page of Yahoo (I saw the title on a buried list of Yahoo message boards) or in any Google News search that I routinely perform several times a day. At any rate, I don't see it mentioned on any other major American news site.

3-18 - After Gaza death, activists resolute

The U.S. State Department said yesterday it will rely on Israel to investigate the death of Rachel Corrie - considering Israel's history of punishing (they never do) those who commit murder while in uniform, I'd say that this was the most ridiculous and utterly indefensible thing I've yet heard from our government.
