Israel Incoherence: Biden Yes, Obama No

Astonishingly incompetent in matters of foreign policy, the Obama administration continues to alarm almost every serious observer of international affairs. The latest gang that couldn't shoot straight moment came when Vice President Biden said, truthfully, that Israel is a sovereign nation that has a right to defend itself, ie, against a nuclear Iran. Today the President said that the US was not giving Israel a green light for an attack (it needs none, Mr. President). Discretion is always needed in diplomacy but it strikes MC as odd that one who touts the virtues of it is so abject in its execution. Expect much more of the same.
