Middle East envoy Martin Indyk was overheard at an upscale Washington, D.C., bar bashing Israel and fully blaming it for the recent failure of peace talks with the Palestinians, according to an individual who overheard the conversation and described it as a surprising and nasty 30-minute-long tirade against the Jewish state.
Indykwho has been identified by the Washington Free Beacon as the source of a recent series of anonymous quotes in the press condemning Israelwas caught openly lashing out at Israel over drinks with several members of his staff and wife, Gahl Burt.
The conversation took place in the hotel bar at the Ritz-Carlton on Thursday night, shortly after Indyk finished delivering remarks at the Washington Institute for Near East Policys (WINEP) annual gala.
While Indyk was critical of Israel in his public remarks, he and his staff are said to have let loose on the Jewish state over drinks before Indyk was scheduled to met with former Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
The tone was nasty, according to the source who overheard the conversation.

The list, Ping

What a dyk.
Obama envoy - no surprises here.
The current utterly feckless President of the United States would rather bow to unreliable Middle Eastern despots who hate us than embrace America’s most reliable ally, heretofore, in the region.
More Obama incompetence writ large.
Who vetted this creep?
There are all kinds of Nazis that have crawled out of the sewer, especially since 2008. Israel gave away most of the land it controlled... and got what? Over 10,000 new missiles aimed at her cities. More bombs in pizza parlors. And constant threats to destroy her entire population.
This big mouthed enemy Ahole is going straight to Hell, where he belongs.
(And Israel is staying put for as long as it takes...)
Now, can we redeem, restore America? That’s the big question....
Barack Hussein Obama?
Why does anyone that sets foot in a synagogue ever vote Democrat? Truly, liberalism is a mental illness.
As bad as that is, for Jews it’s practically cultural suicide.
This is news? This entire administration HATES Israel.
Right, ANOTHER unvetted creep!

He needs to be forced to sell his NBA team! Oh, he doesn’t own an NBA team? Maybe just lose his job? Ok, who am I fooling, I’m sure he was chosen for virulent antisemitism.
If someone didn’t get it on tape(or Iphone), denial will be forthcoming.
He was just stating the administrations position: blame Israel no matter what
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
No surprise, even if he wasn't drunk.
To those on both threads who wonder about his qualifications, they're significant. Founder of a Mideast think tank, twice Ambassador to Israel under President Bubba. And most important to this administration, the first Ambassador, I presume only since it wasn't that long ago, to be stripped of his security clearance. Anyone surprised that record holder, drunk or not, would be loudly holding court on issues he's charged with resolving.
