n an interview to air tonight on CBS's 60 Minutes, President Barack Obama will refer to Israel's concern over Iran's march toward a nuclear program as "noise." Obama Photo
"When it comes to our national security decisions -- any pressure that I feel is simply to do what's right for the American people. And I am going to block out -- any noise that's out there," Obama says, according to AFP.
AFP also reports that Obama will say that "he understands and agrees with Netanyahu's insistence that Iran not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons as this would threaten both countries, the world in general, and kick off an arms race."
But, as the article points out, Obama will not be meeting with Netanyahu this week during the United Nations General Assembly.
Romney, who also is interviewed on 60 Minutes tonight, will say, that Obama not meeting with Netanyahu "is a mistake and sends a message throughout the Middle East that somehow we distance ourselves from our friends and I think the exact opposite approach is what's necessary."
Do you think zero is freaking his handlers out with his candid remarks lately?
So that Iranian General’s threats for pre-emptive strikes against Israel are just bluster and sabre rattling?
Obama no better clue about Israel or Iran than he does about most anything else in the Middle East. For Obama, his next T-time is more important than security briefings or the state of world affairs.
Islam and Sharia law are much more important than democracy.
What else would you expect from a government organizer..the person with the least experience of anyone to do the job. It continues to amaze me that people say Obama is better on foreign policy..What Foreign Policy..He has killed it. We dont have any..whe have a clown in the White House..looting the country..He was never qualified to do anything ..failed at everything but soaking down the government..thats what the usa is to him...A big fat paycheck
Either this is the greatest mind game ever played - Obama is on the same page as Israel - an attack is imminent - Obama is playing like nothing is going on - orrrrrrr Obama is going to leave Israel out in the cold.
any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people
Name me one time Obama has done what is right for the American people.
We are going to think noise once the Lord deals with the United States for turning its back on Israel.
For such a time as this. . . . http://patburt.com/
What an arrogant jerk! Even if Obama doesn’t want to go to war it’s not like Israel does not have legitimate concerns about nutjob Ahmedinejad who wants to wipe Israel off the face of the map. Oh, but Obama’s a nice guy...
Yet the Jews prefer Obama for President over Romney. Obama doesn’t need to respect them, he’s got their vote regardless. Very frustrating.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Israel is noise, but an Islamic muezzin’s call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
Don’t tell me Soetoro’s not an Islamist.
What does it take to make American Jews mad? This guy is walking all over their backs with golf spikes.
0bama is all about noise (the sound of flatulence).
Muslim in Chief in full Al-Taqiyaa mode.
The “noise” this dumb ass president hears will be nothing compared to the noise of the nuclear bombs that start exploding over our country.
