Well, Drew, what I would like to hear from you, instead of unsubstantiated allegations of a "smear campaign," is contravening evidence. This guy is on record as having said these things about 911 and the Tiannamen Square massacre. There is no dispute over the fact that he had financial ties (direct and indirect) to China and Saudi Arabia. He sat on an advisory committe to the CCNOC and, himself, was president of MEPC which is an Arab/Saudi funded front organization.
So, are you suggesting anyone who is openly in favor of Israel, has "ties" to organizations that promote Israel's interests above Arab and Persian interests, and has financial interests in Israeli businesses or businesses doing business with Israel should be banned from serving the US President in an appointed position?
As for his comment on 9-11, there is much truth in the suggestion that we, as Americans, should examine our own action and inaction around the world to better understand the actions and inaction of others as they relate to our domestic security and any other US interests. While such introspection might bring about a realization that the relationship with Israel has greater costs than were originally anticipated, and the consequence might be to wean Israel off its present unconditional support by the US, all in the interests of the United States, it is possible that such a sequence of events might be perceived as detrimental to Israel by Israelis, and their avid supporters in the US. Other than that group of people, I don't see how the words you quoted could be viewed as offensive. To anyone with America's interests as their highest priority, those words don't sound particularly offensive.
The Tiananmen Square quote is admittedly a bit peculiar and likely out of context. Until you produce any evidence that the man is for sale as you claim, I suggest your opinions are, in fact, unsubstantiated allegations.
