This is rather disturbing--especially considering the possible "fallout" (seriously, no pun intended) should Iran finally come to possess a nuclear weapons capability.
I know this is election time and we are all supposed to be focused on domestic politics and the economy, but it is good, occasionally, to step back and examine the other activities in this destructive, anti-American, anti-liberty White House.
Arutz-Sheeva is reporting that President Obama has been using the Israeli papers to interfere with the foreign policy wishes of the Israeli government--and prevent a successful Israeli attack against Iran.
With the Middle East already a rumbling powder-keg of fledgling regimes, some (most?) turning to Islamic extremism, as in Egypt (a stellar Obama success story--sitting and watching as a formerly stable state descends into chaos and then turns to radical Islam--only jumping on the bandwagon at the last second in a sad attempt to garner political credit), nothing the Obama Administration is doing is consistent with our traditional policies towards Israel and Islamic extremists, or our still stated policy.Makor Rishon: IDF identifies U.S. "preventive action" against Israeli attack in collusion with Israeli pundits.By Gil RonenFirst Publish: 8/24/2012, 11:55 AMThe United States is colluding with a top Israeli newspaper to stymie Israel's efforts to strike Iran's nuclear weapons program, and the IDF knows it, according to a leading nationalist pundit.Writing in Friday's edition of Makor Rishon, one of the Israel's veteran journalists, Amnon Lord, paints a picture of intense U.S. meddling in internal Israeli political and security-oriented processes in an effort to prevent a successful Israeli strike on the weapon program meant to make it extinct."From a technical military point of view, Israel does not require any kind of coordination with the Americans," writes Lord regarding the plan for a raid on Iran. "There is a concern that the Americans will learn of the date for an attack and try to prevent it in different ways. The Americans have not given the Israelis a feeling that they are true partners in the operative arena, in the past two years. On the contrary, the IDF has identified preventive American activity against an Iran operation.""This is particularly evident in the grave matter of the leaks regarding Azerbaijan in the past, about the Kurdish region, and recently in the publication of the flight paths to the target. All this is being produced by our ally, with the cooperation of one of the largest media platforms in Israel, which serves and assists the Obama administration against the government of Israel. The Americans are the ones who are feeding some of the arch-pundits with damaging information."

This is just further evidence of Obama's incompetence in handling dangerous international situations and his inability to grasp the importance and critical nature of what's occurring in the Middle East--or it is evidence of something more sinister (but less likely), President Obama wishes Iran to possess a nuclear weapons capability, because he agrees with the wishes of the Islamic Caliphate in Iran and is hostile to Israel's survival.
I tend to think Obama really is as incompetent and ignorant as he appears. His actions (or inaction) when events began to occur in Egypt and during the initial stages of the Libyan popular uprising amounted to that same "sitting and watching" but then, Obama excels at "sitting and watching" as other struggle against despots--or pretty much anything else of import which occurs.
Obama is at heart, a "sitter and watcher," not a "doer" or "accomplisher." He's a follower, not a leader. He is incapable of making decision and of directing policy--this is what happens with you elect someone with no experience and no record of accomplishment. This is what happens when you elect an academic rather than a successful real-world achiever.
President Obama allowed Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats to write "Obamacare" with little input from him other than to rubber-stamp what Pelosi et al put into it. He allowed House Democrats to dictate the stimulus package and he allowed European leaders to take the initiative when Libya first began to show signs of rebellion.
We know that Obama is a follower, not a leader and we know that he likes and has attempted to get close to both Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hugo Chavez, two of the worst, most repressive leaders in the world.
Small wonder Hillary refused to step in as a VP replacement for Joe Biden's job--She has seen first hand just how incoherent and inept the White House is in handling foreign policy . . . and his failures reflect badly back upon her for attempting to enact Obama's badly flawed policies.
So who is it in the White House that hates Israel enough to leak secret mission intel to the press in their attempt to derail the Israelis and help Iran obtain nukes? Is Valerie Jarrett the anti-semite, or is it someone pulling the strings from the outside like the notorious Nazi collaborator George Soros?
Just a reminder of who Americans actually elected back in 2008.
Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
