Jarrett: Israeli strikes on civilians wrong

White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett says Israeli strikes near civilian havens in Gaza were indefensible.

"This is why the cease-fire is so important," Jarrett said in an interview aired Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation." "It's a devastating situation. Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself, and we are Israel's staunchest ally. But you also can't condone the killing of all of these innocent children."

President Barack Obama, she said, was concerned and frustrated by the ongoing violence despite efforts by Secretary of State John Kerry to broker a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

"I think everyone involved is frustrated," Jarrett said. "But you can't let your frustration get in the way of trying to be a constructive player here, and that's what [Obama's] determined to do."

Asked if Israel had gone too far, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg defended the strikes on the same show, saying that "unfortunately if Hamas hides among the innocent, the innocent are going to get killed" because Israel has no choice but to stop Hamas from firing rockets at its citizens.

"There's no simple answer to these kinds of things," Bloomberg said. "You can't walk in a say, 'The good guys are wearing white hats, and the bad guys are wearing black hats. You can't tell who you're fighting in this kind of war."

Valerie Jarrett as a person is wrong!
 
In every possible way.
 
Who the hell is she?
Why is she in the White House?
 
Nobody knows who she is or why she is there. It is a national mystery.
 
We have an Iranian 'mommy' figure for Obama, calling the shots on our national diplomacy? This has to be a joke. This cannot be real.
 
An Iranian condemning Israel? Well, we need to start the presses. Who could have guessed that would happen?
 
It is as newsworthy as a headline screaming that 'fire is hot! and 'water is wet!'

She speaks with the same forked tongue as her boss.  Both wish Israel to disappear from the earth.

I accept that a president (or PM, or CEO) has the right to pick advisors they feel comfortable with and trust.

They should be vetted as hard as the actual President though.

Oh. Wait. My bad.

I'm actually surprised either one or someone else hasn't dropped the goods.

An Iranian princess controlling the White House. WTF?
Move along. Nothing to see here.
 
Rest assurded she is only looking after the interests of America and the American people.
 
Where are we? What is this? What has America become?
 
What the hell is going on!? With everything?
 
My God man, I don't recognize my own country? What is this place?

People (including folks in this forum) who shriek and howl when "the i word" gets mentioned should realize that the Constitutional process involved will not only remove Obama from his office, but Valerie from her two offices (one downstairs, one upstairs) as well...

May I ask how? What would prevent Slow Joe from keeping her on?

If memory serves, her ostensible brief, for the ostensible President, is in the area of domestic affairs. Foreign policy ain't her bailiwick [although to be fair, it doesn't seem to be ANYONE'S Balliwick in this administration]. Now as Joffrey's controller, who knows.
