Love seeing all the background info, especially the differences of opinion in the Bush administration.

When push comes to shove this is the bottom line:
He heard Olmert out calmly and acknowledged that Israel had a right to protect its national security.

Gotta respect the approach...

Hopefully it'll continue that way

What is said in public and in private are two different things. IMHO it has always been this way and I see no sign of it ever changing (Israel's right to protect its national security).

Agreed, but don't forget the other parts of the article in which other administration officers wanted to threaten Israel with isolation or other stuff should they go ahead with the attack. The concern is that this approach could someday take over.
Lucky for us, Bush was a decent man (and I mean that as a compliment) and didn't listen to Condi.
