Trump may be more moderate on settlements and Iran than expected
The Trump administration is shaping its policy toward Israel and a potential peace settlement with the Palestinians in ways that may seem surprising for a president who had appeared to offer the government in Jerusalem a blank check on the expansion of settlements in the West Bank and other issues.”
Trump’s evolving settlement policy appears more lenient toward Israel than the Obama administration’s, but not as lenient as sought by many of Israel’s strongest backers. There may be more continuity with past policy on Israel and on Iran than many foreign policy analysts had expected.

How war propaganda keeps on killing
Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt repeatedly stated the “fact” of Iraq’s hidden WMD and mocked anyone who doubted it. Even after the U.S. government acknowledged that the WMD allegations were a myth – a classic case of “fake news” – almost no one who had pushed the fabrication was punished. The “fake news” stigma didn’t apply to Hiatt and other journalists who actually did produce “fake news,” even though it led to the deaths of 4,500 U.S. soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis.
