Who is Ruth Wedgewood?
She was on BBC's newsnight lastnight, defending the attack on
Syria by Israel. When Jeremy Paxman commented on Whistleass seeing things only in black and white, she got very snippy with him and said:
" Oh you just don't like his elecution because he is from Texas!!"

It really annoys me.When a British journalist tries to critise Dubya they are accused of elitism.

8. Thank you..
You confirmed my thoughts she was a right condesending cow last night on the BBC. So full of crap about why it was OK for Israel to bomb Syria,

2. Ruth Wedgewood
Ruth Wedgewood is a John Hopkins Profesora of International Law (Might I also note that Wolfowitz was formerly the chair of International Relations at John Hopkins) who defended Bush's decree on the establisment on Military Tribunals. She gets quite a bit of coverage on Faux News.
