I’ve seen the text of the Utah speech posted on the Sanders campaign site, and I agree that the speech includes a statement that it’s what he would have said if he’d been allowed to speak by remote. And I don’t *know* that it’s any different — but, with respect, we also don’t *know* that it’s the same. If the written statement he provided to AIPAC were released, we would *know*.
As I’ve said in comments on other articles elsewhere on this topic, though I am a Green and will be voting Green in November, I welcome the comparatively reasonable (admittedly faint praise, given the mainstream “competition”) elements of Senator Sanders’s campaign speech to a friendly audience in Utah — while waiting to see what he said in his written statement directly to AIPAC. Did he say exactly the same things? Did he try to phrase them more diplomatically, or take a more tough-love approach? Did he say anything substantially different? I hope he will answer these questions soon, by releasing this statement. (I suppose they might also be answered if someone else released it — an AIPAC official, for example — but I hope the Sanders campaign will do it.)
