Israel is fuming with the White House for confirming that it was the Israeli Air Force that struck a military base near the Syrian port city of Latakia on Wednesday, hitting weaponry that was set to be transferred to Hezbollah. ...Channel 2′s military analyst, Roni Daniel, said the Obama administrations behavior in leaking the information was unfathomable. Daniel noted that by keeping silent on whether it carried out such attacks, Israel was maintaining plausible deniability, so that Syrias President Bashar Assad did not feel pressured to respond to the attacks. But the US leaks are pushing Assad closer to the point where he cant swallow these attacks, and will respond. This in turn would inevitably draw further Israeli action, Daniel posited, and added bitterly: Then perhaps the US will clap its hands because it will have started a very major flare-up. I copied that part of the post because it bears repeating. Too bad everyone is focused on Obamacare and not talking about the repercussion of this latest leak.
