“A Dangerous Precedent in U.S. Foreign Policy”: Center for American Progress Blasts State Dept.

HeadlineMar 28, 2024

The president of the Center for American Progress, Patrick Gaspard, who is also a longtime Democratic insider and former U.S. ambassador to South Africa, blasted the Biden administration’s defense of Israel’s actions in Gaza. Gaspard’s comments came after State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller told reporters this week that the U.S. believes Israel is complying with international humanitarian law. Gaspard said Miller’s statement is “a gross disregard of overwhelming evidence and a dangerous precedent in the conduct of U.S. foreign policy.”

Meanwhile, the White House says it is working with Israel to reschedule a date for a D.C. visit by an Israeli delegation to discuss the planned invasion of Rafah. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had previously canceled the meeting after the U.S. refused to veto a U.N. Security Council ceasefire resolution.
