Will the real Hamas please stand up

An Israeli research group has reportedly concluded that Hamas used children as human shields and set up command centers and rocket launch pads in or near over 100 mosques and hospitals during the Gaza conflict last year. (Thanks to Daily Alert.)

Today the Wall Street Journal reported that "[s]everal high-profile former U.S. officials, with close ties to the Obama administration, met with leaders of ... Hamas in recent months ..." As Hamas deputy foreign minister Ahmed Yussuf put it, "This administration is different from the previous administration ... We believe Hamas' message is reaching its destination."

Who thinks that Hamas' use of human shields, including children, came up during those discussions?
