Olmert speaks


Ron Kampeas has a brief up about Ehud Olmert’s speech at the AIPAC policy conference on Tuesday night. Uriel Heilman will have a longer story on Wednesday.

My initial impression: The audience response was tepid – not only for Olmert’s pitch for talks with Syria and the Palestinians, but also for the prime minister himself. Even the handful of standing ovations seemed perfunctory.

Here’s the audio:

$(document).ready(function () {swfobject.embedSWF(“/flash/player_v2.1.swf”,”jtaaudio_999376″,”290″,”27″,”9.0.0″,”/flash/expressInstall.swf”,{audioPath: “http://aipac.com/media_files/AudioPC08Speeches/Olmert_Full_Speech.mp3”},{wmode: “transparent”});});Flash is required.
