This Is The Big Deal Vice President Biden

Vice President Biden, yesterday :
US Vice President Joe Biden has offered the Obama administration's strongest defence of Israel's Gaza flotilla raid to date, in a interview on US television this evening, saying: "Israel has an absolute right to deal with its security interest."

Appearing on PBS's Charlie Rose Show, Biden defended Israel's action in boarding the Gaza flotilla as "legitimate". After suggesting the flotilla's cargo of aid could have been unloaded elsewhere, Biden appears to brush off the international criticism, asking: "So what's the big deal here? What's the big deal of insisting it go straight to Gaza?"

Well Vice President Biden, this is the big deal:
A U.S. citizen of Turkish origin was among the nine people killed when Israeli commandos attacked a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, Anatolia news agency reported Thursday.
And furthering how this is a "big f----- deal" in itself sadly:
An official from the Turkish Islamic charity that spearheaded the campaign to bust the blockade on Gaza identified the U.S. citizen as 19-year-old Furkan Dogan, originally from the central Turkish town of Kayseri.

Dogan, who held a U.S. passport, had four bullet wounds to the head and one to the chest, Omer Yagmur of the Foundation of Humanitarian Relief (IHH), told Anatolia.

The agency said the bodies were handed over to relatives after the autopsies.

Someone said yesterday in this thread started by Cenk Uygur that Biden needed to do a prep before going on Rose's show. But the Vice President, and the president himself need to do more than that though.

They simply have to hold the Netanyahu Administration accountable. And we can talk all big and criticize Barney Frank and all, but that same castigation must be labeled at the top as well.

Note: I really didn't want to link it to Fox, I really REALLY didn't. But they had the only write up on the American citizen written up.

Note 2: Just to add, this was already a big deal no matter if a US citizen was killed or not. Lives were simply lost here because of heinous actions that are still allowed to go on by the powers that be.

It shouldn't have to take one citizen here from the US to make this a big deal for anyone.
