Robert Malley, a top Middle East advisor that US President-elect Barack Obama promised months ago would play no role in his administration due to ties to Hamas, has reportedly been sent out on the next administration's first diplomatic mission.
According to a report in Middle East Newsline, Obama dispatched Malley to Egypt and Syria late last week with a message that the he intends to mend and bolster relations with both nations, and to give greater weight to their concerns regarding regional conflicts than did President George W. Bush.
During the Democratic Party primaries, Obama was lashed by critics for having Malley on his team after the latter admitted to being in regular contact with Hamas as part of his work with the International Crisis Group.
Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt quickly responded at the time that Malley had provided "informal advice to the campaign in the past," but insisted that he had "no formal role in the campaign and he will not play any role in the future."

Bill Ayers for Secretary of Education?
Hussein is a liar! Who knew!
Waiting for the day when the O-liar tells the truth about something, anything.
Obama lied. Israel cried................
78% of Jews voted for Obama.
RE post 7. They will live to rue that move.
78% of US Jews are stinking libtards.
I’d take this with a big grain of salt. “Reportedly”? Reported by whom? And Obama has been pretty emphatic about not being President until January 20, so I really doubt that he has sent anyone anywhere on a “diplomatic mission”. Seems more likely that the guy headed out there on his own initiative, and may be trying to give the impression that he’s on a “diplomatic mission” from the President-elect. If so, he’d do well to steer clear of Rahm Emanuel upon his return.
So for the benefit of the gullible Jews Obama had Dennis Ross out front for the campaign. As soon as he wins the election he switches to Malley.
Dennis Ross blamed the failure of Oslo on Arafat. Malley contradicted Ross and all the Clintonites and blamed Israel. Just the guy Jews want to head the ME team. Well they voted for him...
But 78% of Jews in Israel voted for McCain
I thought it impossible that the whole world could line up against Israel until now. It is possible that the CIC could line up with the worst that the earth has to offer.
America to Israel: “You’re on your own.”
I don't believe that liberal Jews are gullible. I believe they are socialists.
some are socialist and some are just plain idiots. I know one who took her fears for Israel and sent them in a letter of instruction to Obama along with her donation.
No surprise. He lies about everything..
Repeat of 1948 when we stood idly by while Israel sustained its statehood against all odds...
