Yes, by all means let us hear directly from Prime Minister Netanyahu on the threat from Iran

We’re not very likely to get a competent and/or honest assessment from the White House, after all, especially since Obama’s been secretly truckling to Iranian interests for some time, including, it now appears, leaning on the Argentinian government to back off of its investigation into Iran’s sponsorship of the 1994 bombing of a Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, which killed 85 people (85 people directly; indirectly, the event also seems to have accounted for the death of Alberto Nisman, the prosecutor who was preparing to lodge formal charges against the Argentinian government for participating in a cover-up of the terrorist action, and who wound up dead in his apartment from a gunshot wound to the head the day before he was to present evidence to Argentina’s Congress).

How is it that “smart diplomacy” seems to be characterized primarily by an elevated body count? Libya, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Nigeria…Obama’s foreign policy legacy is starting to look like a temple built out of human skulls.
