A couple things. We don't "sign articles" on SourceWatch. They're all anonymous.

Also, I'm not too sure about this statement.

long-standing U.S. policy, endorsing Israeli sovereignty over parts of the West Bank in exchange for Israel's disengagement from the Gaza Strip.

It's always been my understanding that the US has always assented to a certain amount of Israeli control in the West Bank. Witness the 2000 Camp David meeting where Arafat was made the "generous offer" that would have left palestinians with a significant portion of the West Bank, but minus the resources that the Israeli sector controlled, thus creating a dependent state.
