Obama Sure Does Hate Israel…
I don’t really feel like getting into an argument about Israel today, but Eli Lake at The Washington Times reports:
President Obama has reaffirmed a 4-decade-old secret understanding that has allowed Israel to keep a nuclear arsenal without opening it to international inspections, three officials familiar with the understanding said.
This despite Obama’s desire to work for a world without nuclear weapons and pressure on Iran — which, incidentally, appears to be achieving something. A Senate staffer tells Eli, “it calls into question virtually every part of the president’s nonproliferation agenda.The president gave Israel an NPT [Nuclear Nonproliferation] treaty get out of jail free card.” I suppose that’s true, but Obama also hasn’t pressed nuclear India or especially nuclear Pakistan to denuclearize either.
