Blinken lied through his teeth about Israeli and U.S. accountability to victims– that’s the real scandal

Daniel Larison made the central point about the Ilhan Omar controversy. People should be outraged about Antony Blinken’s comment and not hers.

“The real outrage in this exchange was Blinken’s claim that victims of U.S. and Israeli war crimes can get justice from the governments responsible for those crimes, because all of us, Blinken included, know that this isn’t true.”

Israel and the US are not accountable to their victims. This is a question of power. Proclamations about being democracies and having justice systems ignore the fact about their actual behavior.

When Blinken said that Palestinians can get justice through Israeli structures he was lying through his teeth.
