Here is an example of Netanyahu the Worthless. The Wye deal was meant to help Israel continue with the peace process with the Palestinians. The deal was pretty much concluded, and would give the Palestinians control over 40% of the West Bank. The beneficiary was Israel, gaining a quiet home front. Then Bibi comes up with his threat: Either release Pollard or I undo the deal of which I am the beneficiary! Had I been Clinton, I would have told Netanyahu to get lost and never to show his face again. (Soon enough, Netanyahu had to call new elections anyhow.) Tenet did a good thing for a change.
