Is Netanyahu Trying To Influence The U.S. Election?
Former State Department official P.J. Crowley doesn’t think so, but one has to wonder.
Earlier this year, U.S. and Israeli officials had informally agreed to stop airing their well-documented disagreements over how to halt Iran’s nuclear program, according to two people familiar with the situation.
But on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu broke the tacit détente. He accused the Obama administration, albeit not by name, of going squishy on Tehran by not creating concrete benchmarks — “red lines,” he called them — for a military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities.
Netanyahu likes Mitt Romney more than he likes President Obama. Is he purposely trying to influence the outcome of our election?
