    Quite the contrary. He is the only person who will win. He is only turning up now that Mossad have told him Obama has discounted the US publishing its own plans. Thus he goes to Washington knowing he will face no significant US pressure. The timing in the run-up to the US mid-terms is probably not coincidental either. Why is he going at all?
