Obama And Netanyahu Speak For An Hour; No Snub Involved
The right wing would like you to believe that President Obama refuses to meet with the Israeli prime minister at the UN next week. It’s not true. They spoke for an hour Tuesday.
“The two leaders discussed the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear program, and our close cooperation on Iran and other security issues. President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu reaffirmed that they are united in their determination to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and agreed to continue their close consultations going forward,” the White House said in a statement…
“Contrary to reports in the press, there was never a request for Prime Minister Netanyahu to meet with President Obama in Washington, nor was a request for a meeting ever denied,” the White House said.
