Rahm Emanuel method of negotiating is foul language and threats.
Why were these not used on Netanyahu?
Emanuel knew that Netanyahu would only laugh at Mitchell.
Yet he allowed the farce to go ahead.
Emanuel has allowed Obama to be humiliated again with the settlement at Gilo.
As an Obama adviser Rahm Emanuel is a total failure.
On health care insurance reform he advised Obama to negotiate item by item instead of presenting a full programme to the health insurance companies and ramming it through.
On Israel, he sent Mitchell to negotiate with the arch negotiators of Israel without a single offering or threat in his pocket.
On everything, in fact, there has been failure. Education, the economy, torture, prisoners – everything is a total failure.
For this Obama will go. A one term President.
But in the meantime Emanuel should be drummed out.
