All Barak Obama needs to do to resolve the furore over the Rahm Emanuel’s appointment is to submit the application to FBI scrutiny and ensure the security-risk assessment process is thorough and fair.

There’s so much evidence that the pro-war Emanuel has unacceptably close links to a foreign power that any honest assessment woud easiy knock out his application for a White House security pass – let alone the Chief of Staff job.

Obama can then turn to the Zionist lobby and say: “Sorry guys, your man didn’t get clearance. (Not my fault)”

Then Obama can pick someone who would.

Sweet!

But will he do it?

Perhaps Michelle Obama could whisper encouragement during some pillow talk?

It may be the only time Obama’s communications aren’t bugged.
