WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration pushed back strongly Monday at a torrent of Israeli criticism over Secretary of State John Kerry's latest bid to secure a cease-fire with Hamas, accusing some in Israel of launching a "misinformation campaign" against the top American diplomat.
"It's simply not the way partners and allies treat each other," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Her comments were echoed by the White House, where officials said they were disappointed by Israeli reports that cast Kerry's efforts to negotiate a cease-fire as more favorable to Hamas.
"Israel has no better friend, no stronger defender than John Kerry," said Tony Blinken, President Barack Obama's deputy national security adviser. He said the criticism of Kerry was based on "people leaking things that are either misinformed or attempting to misinform."

I’m fine with it.
With “friends” like j0hn Kerry who needs enemies?
US is agreeing with Israel’s criticism of Kerry.
Israel knows their only true ally is Canada..Obama wants Hamas to win because he wants all Jews dead..every single American Jew that voted for Obama not once but TWICE, they have Israeli blood on their hands..they wanted this, and now Israel has to suffer because of their actions
I thought the Israeli criticism was SPOT ON!
As if we’re all prima donas.
> US fuming over Israeli criticism of Kerry
I’m not fuming. John Kerry is an idiot.
Israel called him on it and Israel is right.
They just don’t come any more incompetent than Lurch.
“”It’s simply not the way partners and allies treat each other,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.”
Pot calling kettle...
So true! I don’t remember the AP mention “US humiliated” or something similar when Bush was the President!
I think AP would need to take a poll to confirm that it’s the US who’s fuming, not just our incompetent President and various other anti-semites!
US fuming? I’m not fuming. You fuming?
Stupid joke...yet still funny given the target.
A horse walks into a bar and orders a beer.
Bartender says, “My pleasure.”
John Kerry walks into the same bar and orders and a beer.
Bartender says, “Why the long face?”
What was it they said in “The Godfather” when they were talking about having somebody whacked? “It’s nothing personal... it’s about business”. Somebody needs to tell our thin-skinned Secretary of State to stop running to Mommy (Obama) every time somebody calls him ‘a name’.
I have been reading the comment sections at the articles about kerry. The only US who is upset is the WH. Most if not all comments aren’t happy with el heffe and kerry.
The dirty Muslim mongrel that illegally squats in our White House is not an ally of Israel.
Maybe the AP needs to be reminded that the US and the Obama administration are two different things.
Personally, I'm with Israel on this one. And if anybody's American patriotism is to be criticized here, it's certainly not mine. I'll put my patriotism up against that of the America-hating Obama administration any day.
