The Obama Biden Transition Website:

There has certainly never been anything like this before in America. I love that they are
moving into action immediately and doing it via the most effective way the world has produced.
It almost makes me wish I’d voted for them, but then there is that Emmanual guy…ick.

U.S. intelligence sources say that prospective Barack Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has an active FBI counter-intelligence file maintained on him. Emanuel’s rise to the Chief of Staff position may pose a significant security problem for President-elect Obama if the FBI insists on conducting the full background security investigation normally required for senior White House officials.
Questions about Emanuel’s links to the Israeli intelligence service, the Mossad, were allegedly so great that President Bill Clinton was forced to dismiss Emanuel from the White House staff in 1998.
