A “Poisonous” U.S.-Israeli Relationship

Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson was chief of staff to General Colin Powell when Powell was Secretary of State from 2001-2005. Wilkerson offers his insider perspective on the U.S.-Israeli “special relationship,” which he says has left Israel feeling immune from investigation, prosecution or accountability for any crimes it commits. The U.S. accedes to these crimes and even affirms them. Wilkerson discusses the price tag paid by U.S. politicians and diplomats who do speak honestly about Israeli offences, the influence of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the effect of the Citizens United ruling, the causes of the Iraq war.
