Skip to comments.Obama to CNBC: FAA Israel Decision Not Based on ‘Politics’
Posted on 07/24/2014 6:09:06 PM PDT by Nachum
At the very end of an interview with CNBCs Steve Liesman Thursday, President Barack Obama addressed the accusations, from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and others, that the Federal Aviation Administrations decision to ban U.S. flights from landing in Israel for 48 hours was politically motivated. Obama called the move purely technical, saying the United States does not make decisions when it comes to airline safety based on politics or even our strong alliance with Israel. He elaborated: The initial ban that was imposed by the FAA was based on Israel needing to show us that in fact it was safe for commercial airlines

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Not even a smidgen.
In Obama’s defense (ha! never typed that before!), it is entirely possible it was just the bureaucratic chickeshitedness of the sniveling government functionaries at the FAA.
O COME ON!
0bama is all politics all the time.
politics is at the rood of all Obama decisions.
The streets of Israel are safer than the streets of Obama’s Chicago. Obama has to show us that they are safe before we will go there.
Boycotts go both ways, Comrade O!
Remember, the first thing that Oligarch Obama says in a Presser is always a lie.
Cruz hit the truth like a bandit banging a bandicoot.Obama is still wincing.And we need to expose him more.
Most of Obama’s policies domestic and foreign are based on Chicago thug politics and extortion, and the only one
out-thugging Obama is Vlad the Inhaler Putin.
Obama has changed America into a banana republic. It sure was a political initiative to have Obama FAA commizar thugs declare Ben Gurion airport a no fly zone. The data boys and girls at FAA quicky reacted and cancelled it, but other Agencies such as IRS, are completely in the Obama fascist commizar bag, and do not correct their thugs as the FAA has done, this includes Homeland Security, the FBI and the Border Patrol, the EPA, as well as the FBI and others.
I hope someone is taking names, because they should be kicked out of government agencies when the new president is inaugrated.If not, many will meet rather more inglorious ends.America is sick of them, real sick.
Whats even more ludicrous is that Obama is waiting for Israel’s airliners to be shot down by Hamas. Obama was responsible for delivering thousands of hand held surface to air missiles to the jihadists from Ghadaffi’s Arsenal and Obama knows they are about to show up, but guess what?
The Israeli secret service,The Mossad, has it under control, and any ordnance coming in from Libya into Gaza is interdicted, which is why the tunnels into Gaza from Egypt are being destroyed now.The Ghadaffi arsenal will never reach Gaza, despite Obama handing it over to Israel’s enemies in Benghazi.
Obama is frustrated again as the Israelis ace him completely.I love that. I hope he starts having dictator tantrums on television.
