President Obama was just caught doing something that could change the entire way the U.S. is viewed on an international level.
Newly surfaced reports reveal that Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli jets if they attacked the Iranian nuclear program. According to Breitbart, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to launch airstrikes against Iran after “Israel revealed that the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.”
Israeli forces reportedly trained for weeks for the attack before Netanyahu told Secretary of State John Kerry about it, who in turn told Obama. The president made the threats to shoot down the jets, and Netanyahu immediately backed down. This incident is said to have been a major contributing factor in the souring of U.S.-Israeli relations.
If Obama did indeed threaten to shoot down the jets of one of America’s greatest allies, it could change the way the entire world views us. Nice move, Mr. President…
