First he was involved in intelligence work in Australia and Israel. Then he was brought to the US to head up the Israeli/Jewish lobby. Then when Clinton ran for office he was tasked to the Little Rock Campaign HQ of the maybe President to be. Then, upon Clinton's election, his Australian citizenship was rush-changed to American and he was put in the National Security Council - a reward for all the help from 'the lobby'. After that it was on to the State Department - Assistant Secretary of State for the 'Near East' and then Ambassador to Israel. Sounds 'too good' to be true, we know; but in fact this is the sorry history of US policies infiltrated by a small cabal of personalities all closely affiliated with 'the lobby'. Now, Dennis Ross heading up the official lobby think tank, Indyk has taken over Middle East affairs at The Brookings Institution. What a tale...and it continues.
