The likelihood of US abandoning Israel and Netanyahu accepting it is too low. what I see is a good chess move. I don't think that US would ever throw Israel into lion's den. I think something else was planned in the Obama Netanyahu meeting. Obama cannot risk angering Turkey more, cannot risk giving up on Israel. he had to push for the int'l probe so that Turkey felt like he was on their side. yet he probably assured Netanyahu during their meeting that the probe was necessary, but the outcome would not hurt Israel. I think US will ensure that the probe will find IHH guilty. Turkey will not be able to blame US since Obama seems to have forced Israel. and Israel will be free of guilt, knowing at the same time that the US actually helped them. That's the perfect outcome for the US. if they can affect the outcome of the probe undetected, that is.
