Philip Giraldi: Is Nikki Haley an ‘Agent of Influence’?

[ Ed. note – Whenever I see a picture of Nikki Haley it’s usually of her sitting in her chair at the UN, her face grimaced by a scowl. I’m pretty sure this is the only photo I’ve ever seen of her with a doting smile on her face. Below is an interesting article by Philip Giraldi, who explores the question of whether Haley is a “de facto agent of  influence” for Israel.  (Hat tip Ariadna) ]
