An un-named source claims that President Obama said x, y, and z in private talks with PM Netanyahu. Then the source replies with shaky, and sometimes silly, comments that are said to be Netanyahu's fears about US intentions. In the US, reports focus on President Obama's visit to Afganistan and the US demands that President Karzai clean up his act. And on another bombing in Iraq, where they have had another general election. And on far-right Republican Sarah Palin's "just teasing now" death threats against various Democratic Members of Congress. Recall that the US just gave Israel $30 billion worth of advanced weapons. Is that the action of a US administration preparing to throw Israel over a cliff? Reading through the complaints of the onerous policies the US is said to be "imposing", it is hard to keep from thinking, on each, well, yeah, who would oppose that?
