"author a 'position paper' on their views of the U.S.-Israel relationship"

the above quote is from a thread I posted yesterday

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

----
"AIPAC meets with every candidate running for Congress. These candidates receive in-depth briefings to help them completely understand the complexities of Israel's predicament and that of the Middle East as a whole. We even ask each candidate to author a 'position paper' on their views of the U.S.-Israel relationship--so it's clear where they stand on the subject." (Would it not be great to see these "position papers"? I wonder how many candidates would release them? And what do the candidates get for all this effort? A pat on the back?)"
----

does anyone know if our Sens. and Reps. author and give them to AIPAC and if copies exist that we can read?

shouldn't we ask them about it?

do other PACs ask for and receive 'position papers'?

1. I would be delighted to see them!
I am certain they all jump through their asses to provide one, AIPAC has tremendous clout. Two facts: The report on PBS's NOW was that AIPAC threw the two most expensive parties at the 2004 Conventions, one at the DNC and one at the RNC. They are not listed at Opensecrets.org. I don't know what else needs to be said.
