HaAretz ^ | 5/13/2009 | Aluf Benn

Posted on 05/13/2009 5:37:40 PM PDT by Nachum

U.S. President Barack Obama has sent a message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanding that Israel not surprise the U.S. with an Israeli military operation against Iran. The message was conveyed by a senior American official who met in Israel with Netanyahu, ministers and other senior officials. Earlier, Netanyahu's envoy visited Washington and met with National Security Adviser James Jones and with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and discussed the dialogue Obama has initiated with Tehran.

Does Obama have an Israeli security clearance now? They’d be fools to tell him much of anything that needs to be secret.

I want to know to let my brother’s know when you will attack so they will be ready

so now he thinks he can tell other countries what to do and when to do it.
I hope they do this on Friday night Saturday morning and interrupt his pathetic date night and let him get out of bed and do some work for once instead of just reading someone else’s speeches

Netanyahu had better be careful about giving Obama NO WARNING of a strike. Obama is perfectly capable of alerting the Mullahs.

I wish Bush had taken care of this a few year ago, when he still had the chance. Now we’re all in the soup, especially Israel.

Sorry, Mahdi Obama, there is no choice but to take out Iran’s nukes.

The most dangerous aspect of the zero administration is, these people are all complete losers, and adolescent.

Any ridicule just sends them into tantrums that, if not stopped, will do irrepairable damage to the US ... indeed ... the world.

Yep, all Netanyahu will be doing is what America should have done and didn't.

Maybe it’s because of this:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2250099/posts

Supposedly, Bambi has sent his own personal “negotiator” to Iran, where he is probably chatting with Ahmadinejad right at this very moment.

Iran is going to end up being made the big power in the ME, thanks to Bambi. And I think he knows this full well.

Another interesting aspect, of course, is Hillary Clinton. If this meeting is so important, shouldn’t the Secy of State be the one doing it, not some unknown, unvetted, unappointed “personal representative” of Obama? Hillary has been side-lined to official photo ops with dignataries. Like everything else, foreign policy has been taken away from the people appointed to do it and made the private preserve of a megalomanic president and his secretive, report-only-to-him “advisers.”

...or what?

You’ll have the UN draft up a cranky letter?

You’ll shoot them down as they pass through Iraq?
(If so, you may discover they’ve thought of this possibility, and have a surprise awating you.)

You’ll give a stirring speech?
(Knock yourself out...)

You’d serve the world better if you refueled them at our bases, and re-armed them with fresh missiles.

What a cosmic jerk...

Bibi was best/brightest category at MIT. That means he has to have both Oinkbama and H. Klintler by 40 - 60 IQ points and most likely views the two of them the way you or I would view farm animals.

In all seriousness, Bibi would be a fool to trust anyone in the Obama operation with Israeli OPSEC intelligence. I don't think it would take a tremendous leap of faith to believe that someone, perhaps many people, would give Iran the heads up.

Obama should find out by reading CNN like the rest of the world except Iran where they, hopefully, will no longer have the capability to watch TV or much of anything else. Obama would warn Iran or actively sabotage any Israeli strike if e could. He will make Iran the preeminent power in that part of the world, if he is allowed to proceed on his present course.

“The bombing starts in 5 minutes”.

If the prime minister had ANY intention of giving us the heads up before striking, he certainly doesn’t have it anymore.
