Obama Administration Apparently Leaks Misleading Story To Seem More Pro-Israel Than Bush

Obama Administration Apparently Leaks Misleading Story To Seem More Pro-Israel Than Bush

The News Beast reports that Obama sold Israel bunker buster bombs that the Bush administration had previously blocked in 2005.

The problem: In 2007, the Bush arranged for the bombs to be delivered in the 2009-2010 time period, which they were.  Newsweek of course dutifully spun the story to emphasize Bush’s original refusal, rather than the fact that the bombs arrived when Bush had promised they would.

Obama doesn’t deserve points for every agreement with Israel he doesn’t break.  He deserves criticism for each one he does break, such as the agreement that promised Israel US support for building in certain parts of East Jerusalem.

But maybe I’m just too cynical.  Surely this “leak,” conveniently spun by a friendly publication,  has nothing to do with Obama’s “I’m not anti-Israel, now please give me your money so I can have four more years of being even more ‘not anti-Israel’ than I am now ” campaign to shore up his Jewish support.  No, that would be crazy talk.

The media is in the tank for obama. What else is new? They have to buy new knee pads every week of so. I wonder if the public (the ones who watch the alphabet channels, newspapers and magazines) will catch on when obama is praised to the skies for doing everything right…in other words perfect and the republican can’t do anything right and gets the shaft will wonder if the media is biased. Somehhow I doubt it.

I find it curious that this secret deal is being released to the entire world. Doesn’t really do much for Israel, does it?

I don’t know what happened here. Eli Lake is a serious journalist, not like most of the hacks at the Daily Beast. Because Lake was involved I’m willing to believe that he made an honest mistake.

    I hear you, but leftist liberals are liberals first, before anything. Even if it means sacrificing their integrity, their reputation, their career.

This is similar to the NYT Mag on Obama being the “Jewish President” or something. Pathetic.

Did you hear this? I personally think it was a simple slip of the tongue, but it is hard to explain it away: “…Pay the Same Tax Rate as a Jew – uh….as a janitor” (h/t Gateway Pundit).

Freudian slip? Was he going to say Jewish? Or just another slip of the tongue? Wonder what the ‘prompter actually said.

Back some 2700 years ago the Assyrians tried to alter the political, social and cultural state of then Israel and Judah by forcing emigration and immigration of peoples. Now we are still in this process, but by different actors on the world stage. My father was in the British armed forces during WWII, stationed in Egypt and Palestine. He said of the creation of the State of Israel: Lots of trouble will come of this. Blessings may come of it too. But trouble… our only constancy.

    Trouble would come of returning part of the land to its rightful owners?! Trouble came from the British criminals forcibly preventing the native people from coming home, and deporting them back to Europe to be slaughtered. Trouble came from the British criminals arming and supporting the Arabs’ attempt to complete what their German allies started. The UK received “Palestine” in trust for the Jewish nation, with the explicit mandate to increase Jewish immigration and prepare it for Jewish sovereignty; when it broke that trust it caused all the trouble that has happened since then.

Well it does take a certain amount of time for Contracting, R&D, Production, and Delivery, and they were working through the Government….
