Juan Cole on the Sarcozy/Obama live-mic gaffe

Juan Cole exceeds my expectations regularly. I should revise my expectations, but they are fairly vast already where he is concerned. A paragraph:
President Obama didn’t seem in a hurry to defend Bibi, who has in fact had a long history of prevaricating. His biggest lie? That he wants a “peace process” with the Palestinians. That is sort of like saying that shearers want a “peace process” with the sheep that they fleece.
