O’s knife in Israel’s, US’s, backs?

April 1, 2012

 

John R. Bolton, a diplomat and a lawyer, has spent many years in public service. From August 2005 to December 2006, he served as the U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations. From 2001 to 2005, he was under secretary of state for arms control and international security. At AEI, Ambassador Bolton's area of research is U.S. foreign and national security policy.

Our president deliberatly leaking information adverse to ally, Israel, and favoring enemy, Iran?

“Say it ain’t so, O.” – (Apologies to Shoeless Joe Jackson)

Would be no suprise to those who have examined facts regarding our president’s behavior both before and in office.

But our elite leftie education-media-government-finance-activist-union-relligious complex have kept most in abysmal ignorance of the character of the man they put in office through a miracle of modern mass media spin.

An Azeri official has subsequently said the claim that Azerbaijan has granted Israel access to its air bases for an attack is ‘absurd and groundless’. That denial, however, is clearly limited. And several observers have concluded that whether this is a genuine leak or disinformation, the story is an attempt to harm Israel by its principal western ally. Indeed, assuming it is not a total fabrication but is based on actual briefings, it is hard to conclude anything else.

Bolton said: ‘I think this leak today is part of the administration’s campaign against an Israeli attack.’ Bolton, a Fox News contributor, noted that a strike launched from Azerbaijan would be much easier for the Israelis than a strike launched from their own country – jets could stay over their targets longer and worry less about refueling. But he said tipping the Israelis’ hand by revealing ‘very sensitive, very important information’ could frustrate such a plan.

‘Clearly, this is an administration-orchestrated leak,’ Bolton told FoxNews.com. ‘This is not a rogue CIA guy saying I think I’ll leak this out. It’s just unprecedented to reveal this kind of information about one of your own allies.‘ As Dan Margalit asks in the Israeli paper Israel Hayom: ‘What reasonable interest does someone in the Pentagon have in hardening the Iranian pharaoh’s heart on the eve of Passover, and indicating to him that he has nothing to fear? This borders on insanity.’

Sabotaging an ally’s defences in this manner goes much further than Obama’s previous known position in trying to stop an Israeli attack on Iran. This actively assists Iran, and thus potentially places the lives of millions at risk from that regime’s deranged belligerency. Is this what Obama meant when he tried to reassure American Jews recently that ‘…when the chips are down, I have Israel’s back’?

And since Iran does not merely threaten Israel but is already at war with America and the west it has pledged to destroy, is this not in fact a knife in the back of the west itself?
