    Abbas and the PLO went ballistic when they learned from the news media that for a 2-month "extension" (entirely to help Obama politically in November) Obama was promising Israel a long-term security presence in the Jordan Valley to prevent arms smuggling into the demilitarized PA state. Mitchell had to issue a shrill public denial to calm them down, announcing that there was "no letter of guarantees to Israel" (because it was a "draft"). And the PLO have since completely shut up about the list of guarantees, including the Jordan security presence, instead of continuing their usual hysterical public temper tantrums. WHY? Because Obama has assured them that he made no such binding promises to Israel, and that the PLO will have to approve any Israeli security presence in the Jordan Valley, that the Israelis will have to "negotiate" for it, and that US "support" for Israel's demands didn't mean that they would untimately happen. Every one of the Obama "guarantees" will be sleazily worded in the final "letter" to give Obama a back door escape. As the American voters have learned, this is exactly how Obama operates - when he's called out by voters here on all the commitments and promises he has blatantly violated, his response is always that, no, he didn't break any promise, but that "You just didn't understand me". Any Israeli leader who accepts an Obama promise is a fool - just ask any American.
