Ambassador Bolton on Obama's Response to Gaza Flotilla Ambush: "Weak" (Video)

Ambassador John Bolton weighs in on the ObamaAdministration’s response to the Gaza Flotilla ambush:

Greta Van Susteren: How do you characterize the US response?

Ambassador John Bolton: Weak. The United States could have said very clearly on Memorial Day, we are not going to accept a statement by the President of the Security Council that is critical of Israel as the one they turned out. Now that was watered down to be sure. If I had been there and had my discretion, I’d have said, “I’m not going to negotiate this.” It’s fundamentally unacceptable. You don’t condemn something and then call for an investigation. If you want to have an investigation that’s one thing but too many people had already made their minds up.
