I still haven’t had the time to catch up with the story behind what was a horrific event over the weekend, but here’s some coverage.
From The Nation:
This one is about lack of satisfaction in Obama’s response.
Netanyahu canceled a meeting with Obama to fly home to deal with the fallout.
Turkey is comparing the incident to 9/11.
An article on one of the Americans involved.
Israel’s press conference on the subject claiming they found weapons on the flotilla, and that they were shot at first.
The Israeli account of the incident.
The videos came from the Israeli government link. If anybody has anything from a more neutral source, please let me know.
Addendum: Here is the most reasonable piece on the incident I’ve come across, or so it appears to me since I pretty much agree with the analysis. I think in Israel’s case I’m reminded of the old peace movement saying, “when your only tool is a hammer, you see every problem as a nail.”
Second addendum: Some statements from flotilla survivors.
Third addendum: Here’s a CBS story on the topic.
