Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., said he thinks the threat of a ground war is overblown.
‘‘I don’t think the Israelis really want a ground war,’’ he told ‘‘Fox News Sunday.’’ ‘'They'll go into Gaza if they feel they need to, to eliminate the remainder of the missiles. ... So really, the decision is up to Hamas, as to whether there will be a ground invasion of Gaza or not.’’
