This has always struck me as one of the biggest con jobs that the media has passed on:
He [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon] later accepted the U.S.-backed “road map” peace plan, with significant reservations. The plan calls for an end to violence, a settlement freeze and the creation of a Palestinian state by 2005. [Italics mine]
His reservations has always indicated that there are conditions he has no intentions of complying with, indicating that he in truth doesn’t accept the plan. Why the media is so content to push this myth of acceptance is beyond me.
Speaking of Con jobs, here’s one on Continental’s new LCC.
