      Tom,

      That's great news. I read last evening the recently retired director of Mossad is openly criticizing Netanyahu's policies concerning stalled peace initiatives and recalcitrance regarding 1967 borders.

On Wednesday, House discontent with the Libya military operation - and with warmaking in general - seemed to boil over, the Post says. An early warning came last week, when the House narrowly voted down a proposal to demand a speedy transition of U.S. forces out of Afghanistan.
