[a]s an Admiral in command of the USS George Washington Carrier Battle Group, Joe deployed one of his Aegis cruiser [sic] off the coast of Israel in 2003 to integrate its radar system into Israel's air defense system in order to provide for early warning against missiles that might have been launched by Iraq during the early phases of the Iraq War ...he did so on his own initiative. I'm told that's not how it works.
Now Sestak has an ad that claims
According to AIPAC, Joe Sestak has a 100% pro-Israel voting recordBut according to AIPAC (on the record), that's just not true.
"Joe Sestak does not have a 100% voting record on Israel issues according to AIPAC. It couldn't be true, we don't rate or endorse candidates," said AIPAC spokesman Josh Block of the ad, which ran in the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent.More Sestak supporters race to the rescue, claiming this is just semantics. It's not. Either AIPAC has reported that Sestak has a 100% pro-Israel voting record, or it hasn't. We're not talking about the meaning of "is" here.
And that's going to be wrap for this week.
