The Mideasti blog covers a great little story of a young air force cadet asking a horribly tricky question of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

The Commander obfuscated about not answering hypotheticals and the great US-Israeli relationship but overall I wholly agree with Michael Collins Dunn commenting that
