Good luck, Mr. President!


Apparently, President Bush will be visiting Israel in the coming weeks. He is but one of many Presidents and diplomats who have tried and are trying to bring peace to the troubled region. However, Mr. Bush should pay extra attention to his own security while there.

According to an Israeli Magazine, a bodyguard from the security detail that failed to protect Prime Minister Rabin on the night he was murdered in 1995, has now been promoted and will be the senior Israeli responsible for protecting the U.S. President in January.

Speaking as someone who hires executive protection specialists, the last thing I would have done with that ill-fated security detail would have been to promote any of them. Actually, I can not see how any of them would have been allowed to keep their jobs. One wonders how much difference there is between the public and private sector there.

For the president’s sake, I hope they are big into “learning by their past mistakes”.
