Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 04, 2024

Speaking out after the killing of seven international aid workers by Israel in Gaza, among them an American citizen, one former Pentagon attorney said that any US investigations into Israel's actions were "perfunctory" and "performative" due to pressure from the White House. The former officials say the president's decades-long and deeply held personal connection to Israel renders US laws and regulations concerning US arms sales essentially toothless. "There's no incentive to investigate if the president and the White House themselves have announced that aid is unconditional," said Brian Finucane, who worked for a decade in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the State Department advising on arms transfers and the laws of war.
