Someone Tell Bush About The Updated Hamas Platform

After the Hamas victory in Palestinian elections, President Bush told reporters in a White House press conference:

"I have made it very clear, however, that a political party that articulates the destruction of Israel as part of its platform is a party with which we will not deal."

"I don't see how you can be a partner in peace if you advocate the destruction of a country as part of your platform."

However, Hamas recently dropped its call for the destruction of Israel.

Wolf Blitzer seems to have also missed this important development as CNN continues to play up the "destruction of Israel" angle all day long .
