    Admission that US was aware of harmless nature of Yishai's municipal planning announcement - no actual "facts on the ground" for years, if ever - and chose to artificially escalate the matter with fraudulant claim (knowing it was untrue) Bibi had deliberately insulted the US - has just permanently destroyed Clinton's and Obama's credibility, enraging US voters. Who deals with a sleazy four-flusher like this? Obama will get nothing but lip-service from Bibi, he can't be trusted. Obama failure to also publically denounce Abbas and his Fatah organization for calling for massive violence over Israel's Hurva Synagogue rededication establishes convincingly that its Obama who is not interested in peace. So damning was this omission, when asked about it in an interview, why no public condemnation, no demand PA also prove its commitment to peace, Obama decided to LIE about it, claiming he HAD, media missed it! This clumsy liar be now be exposed. Israel will never trust this cheap con artist.
