They also insist that the US economy is aces and that they have an easy ride to reelection. Why shouldn't they be peddling this garbage as well?

The headline makes it sound like he wants to salvage the crisis, like keep it going. Could be the badly written headline is unintentionally more accurate than the story itself.

“Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was engaged in “extremely intensive” diplomacy with Israel,......”

Translation:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was engaged in “extremely intensive” rounds of overt threats, bullying, and blackmail at Israel,

Psalm 17:10-12

“They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
