That’s what several outlets are reporting:
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
This seems so out of character for Obama and Kerry doesn’t it? Maybe Glenn Kessler over at the Washington Post’s fact checker can get on the case. Obama said he and Israel are tighter than Reggie Love’s turdcutter, and we can produce many quotes from Obama saying so, so this must be a lie. Because Obama doesn’t lie.
If this is the case, it would certainly explain the unprecedented efforts by this regime to derail Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. Don’t go out drinking anywhere tonight, Bibi. We know what happens to this administration’s enemies when that happens.
Here is Obama adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Carter official and father of MSLSD’s Mika Brzezinski, telling the Daily Beast in 2009 that Obama should gladly shoot down any Israeli planes if they fly over Iraq to attack Iran:
How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?
We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?
What if they fly over anyway?
Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse. [Israeli jet fighters and torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty in international waters, off the Sinai Peninsula, during the Six-Day War in 1967. Israel later claimed the ship was the object of friendly fire.]
Nice attack plan you’ve got there. It would be a shame if a little “friendly fire” got revenge for the Liberty wouldn’t it? It also shows that Obama had a backdoor plan to screw over Israel and any anti-Iranian US allies in the Middle East from before he was elected. Enter Valerie Jarrett again.
If this warning did occur, then Netanyahu has an obligation to the notify the American public about it. This traitor thrives on secrecy, misinformation, and disinformation with the help of a state run media that never lets a story see the light of day. They cannot hide your live comments to Congress.
An American President threatens to shoot down the planes of an ally to protect a deal that allows one of our most vicious enemies to get a nuclear bomb. I understand why he wouldn’t. It is important for Israel to present a united front with the U.S. against the Arab world and admitting this unprecedented threat would probably invite aggression.
But this is just Obama in a nutshell right there. No doubt. This makes total sense and explains why our relations are at an all time low.
I seem to recall something about this last year and thought that a strike was imminent and then it disappeared from the radar. This would go a long way towards explaining why.
Linky: A great summary of where we at this exact moment from Matthew Continetti over at NRO.
As for Netanyahu, he is called “chickens***” by anonymous sources, the national security adviser says his decision to address Congress is “destructive” of the U.S.–Israel alliance, Kerry tells Congress it shouldn’t listen to Bibi because he voiced wan support for regime change in Iraq (a war that Kerry voted to authorize), the congressional liaison rallies the Congressional Black Caucus to boycott the speech, and the administration leaks to the AP its strategy “to undercut” his speech and “blunt his message that a potential nuclear deal with Iran is bad for Israel and the world.” The strategy includes media appearances and the threat of a “pointed snub” of AIPAC, which has done everything it can over the last several years to ignore or acquiesce to President Obama’s anti-Israel foreign policy.
Again, unprecedented vitriol against an ally. They would never talk about Iran this way. Or ISIS, who they can’t even name. Or Putin. Or the Taliban. Or the Muslim Brotherhood. Unreal.
Via Free Republic: Here is current US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power in 2008 saying in an interview with UC Berkeley stating that we should cut off military aid to Israel and give it to “Palestine” and a suggestion that we should invade Israel as an occupying force to prevent them from committing genocide against Hamas. She says that it’s fundamentally not democratic but ultimately necessary.
So we see how she won her job.
