After years of exposure to the weird and ofttimes hard-to-understand decisions arrived at in “Foggy Bottom” (the U.S. State Department), I thought I was immune to surprise. But one of the latest decisions has me wondering. With many of the countries in the Middle East experiencing rebellion and others exhibiting unrest, the possibility of a war involving Israel becomes more likely each day. So what do the brains in Washington, D.C., decide but to give Egypt 200 of our top-of-the-line Abrams tanks! The current situation in Egypt would lead me to believe they would likely be opponents of Israel. What are we thinking?
