Just because someone has been elected to a high office doesn't mean that by some divine intervention s/he has been blessed with the wisdom of Solomon. Too often leaders are deficient in moral and intellectual blessings. In the case of Israel and the United States. leadership has been gravely deficient. U.S. prestige has plummeted to a shameful degree due to truth revelations by the Manning-Lasange-Snowden trinity. The U.S. image was damaged by the accumulation of illegalities over time not by the revelations per se. It is the necessity of those actors of wrongdoing to keep secret their illegal actions that eventually discloses their true character. The U.S. and Israel have been working together hand and glove to repress the Arab drive for freedom and democracy in Palestine and in the region that is now blowing up in their face as witnessed by the Arab Spring. The Snowden revelations have hit Europe like a political earthquake shaking trust in Washington off its foundation.
