This is what Obama does to those who stand up to his belligerence.
From The Weekly Standard.
On February 12, the Pentagon quietly declassified a top-secret 386-page Department of Defense document from 1987 detailing Israel’s nuclear program – the first time Israel’s alleged nuclear program has ever been officially and publically referenced by the U.S. authorities.
In the declassified document, the Pentagon reveals supposed details about Israel’s deterrence capabilities, but it kept sections on France, Germany, and Italy classified. Those sections are blacked out in the document.
Both these media were rumored to have been tipped off about this obscure report at the time by persons in Washington. (Both the RT and PressTV stories falsely claim that the U.S. gave Israel help in building a hydrogen bomb. This is incorrect.)
Israel has never admitted to having nuclear weapons. To do so might spark a regional nuclear arms race, and eventual nuclear confrontation.
Hell, hostile Arab countries have developed and produced nuclear weapons for decades. They’re not exactly using their centrifuges and nuke material for peaceful goals. Can’t blame Israel for doing what it has to do to protect itself and deter threats. Obama damned sure won’t.
The declassification is a serious breach of decades’ old understandings concerning this issue between Israel and its north American and certain European allies.
Obama has pretty much trashed any understanding between us and our allies.
The Pentagon’s February declassification coincided with intense pressure on the Netanyahu government by the Obama administration, trying to force the Israeli prime minister to cancel a planned speech to Congress questioning the wisdom of a highly risky nuclear deal with the Iranian regime.
Benjamin Netanyahu won’t kiss Barky’s ass, nor will he sacrifice the security of Israel to please Obama’s propensity to kiss Iran’s ass. Netanyahu made a good decision accepting the GOP’s offer to speak before Congress. It was the only way he could directly voice his concerns to America about Obama’s maltreatment of Israel and the consequences of a nuclear Iran, which really got Barky’s panties in a wad.
……This coincides with stepped up efforts this week by the Obama administration to weaken Israel’s deterrent capabilities, including leaking to the Wall Street Journal incorrect allegations that Israel directly spies on the U.S.
An informed person connected to the government in Jerusalem, tells me:
“Over the years there have been backhanded references and comments made by individuals with some familiarity with this issue. But there has never before been any official description of the quality and capacity of installations. This kind of declassified document constitutes a whole different level of acknowledgement. It is part of a pattern of carefully controlled leaking of information which is very hard to attribute to a specific government agency or individual. Nevertheless it is clear what is happening.
“The failure to maintain the degree of mature and cooperative discretion that officials from several governments have exercised up to now, marks a serious change in the code of conduct. It is not wise to draw attention to this issue because it would tend to destabilize the international order and encourage others to pursue nuclear capabilities.”
You forget, Obama is a petty little tyrant who thinks of himself as an unassailable emperor who’s entitled to anything he wants, especially deference from allies who have the gall to counter his subversion.
And to top it off, Barky is considering allowing Iran to operate centrifuges in underground bunkers.
Obama’s betrayal of Israel shouldn’t surprise anyone. He always treats his perceived enemies that way.
