Netanyahu's Nominee for Next Envoy to U.S.: The Brains Behind His Support for Romney

The prime minister reportedly wants U.S.-born advisor Ron Dermer to replace Michael Oren in Washington. But, for a number of reasons, he might want to rethink the nomination.

Israel's ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren is expected to step down from his role in May 2013 after four years as Benjamin Netanyahu's representative in Washington. This role is one of the Israeli prime minister's most important positions of trust, all the more so when it comes to Netanyahu.
