That's Robert Gibbs comment on her...of course her views reflect those of this administration it only remains to be seen if the threat of a war between Turkey and Isreal that is very real and looming in the eastern Mediterreanian Sea will affect the present anti-Israeli stance of this administration. Here is Ms. Thomas' non-appology statement:
“I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”
It's nice to see that she didn't actually get away with this. The WaPo, NYT and LAT still haven't actually posted any stories on this yet...but they'll now be able to write glowing stories about how wonderful Ms. Thomas' reporting was and her 60 year career...all without mentioning what a horrendous bigot she is.
