US and Israel Worked Together to Track, Raid Iranian Weapon Ship, White House reveals its role in
inn ^ | 3/5/14 | Staff

The United States intelligence services and military worked with Israel to track the Iranian ship carrying missiles to Gaza, which was apprehended Wednesday, according to AFP.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Washington started to work with Israel through intelligence and military channels and at the national security advisor level as soon as it knew the shipment was on the move.

President Barack Obama also directed the US military to work out contingencies in case it became necessary to intercept the vessel, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One.

"Throughout this time our intelligence and military activities were closely coordinated with our Israeli counterparts who ultimately chose to take the lead in interdicting this shipment of illicit arms," Carney said.

"We will continue to stand up to Iran's support for destabilizing activities in the region in coordination with our partners and allies," he said. "These illicit acts are unacceptable to the international community and in gross violation of Iran's Security Council obligations."

to bolster Obama’s sinking image.

Notice the Press Release from Isreal. Not one word about US involvement.

It tells me, They informed Nero when he was in town Yesterday. Most likely as or right after the raid took place.

If only to expose the intelligence that allowed for the capture, so our enemies know it too.

Yeah, the raid's over and it was a success, time for the White Hut to say to hell with security and grab the credit for the great job the Israelis did.

Obama is working 24/7 to destroy Israel and kill the joooos. Or at least to set them up so his islamoNazi comrades in Arms and sponsors can do it. At the same time, he is misusing our great USAF to defend the Iranian nuclear bomb and ICBM factories And he’s both leaked secret intelligence information to undermine any efforts to take those dangerous factories out And now he’s actually funding them And he openly threatened war against anybody attacking them. Nobody with two brain cells believes this press statement. A Big lie To make Gobbels and Siros proud. And we have three more years of this krap to go.

If Israel’s Mossad and other intelligence agencies weren’t ten times as proficient as the U.S.’s at exposing and defusing terrorist plots, Israel would have ceased to exist decades ago.

But it’s in Israel’s best interests to allow Obama to brag to his heart’s content about U.S. involvement in this latest Iranian-armaments-to-Hamas incident, since Iran will blame the U.S. as much as Israel for upsetting its plans.

Not to mention that if Israel finally decides to bomb Iran’s nuclear installations, the world will assume that once again the U.S. ‘’worked together’’ with Israel on that mission, too.

Did Israel make any public statements about this raid before Carney spoke about it, or after?

It is probably safe to assume that Valerie Jarret had no fore knowledge about this raid. IF that is true, she must be royally p!$$ed off.

Right... WHY would this be public information?

“O” has a mouth like a torn pocket book.

Of course ... if he feels like it will benefit HIM directly, materially (albeit temorarily) he WILL blab!

I think the Russians and the CIA spooks are coordinating their beating of Obama on the world stage. The food stamp president is a “bit below his pay grade” as Uncle Joe would say.

More likely Obama found out about the arms shipment when it was reported in the Israeli news.

Now that, I'll believe.

Yes, this is about Obama trying to look less small compared to Putin.

The problem is that the only way for Obama to look less small is to knock down those who are close to him.
