Former Marine Striker: It’s Time to “Start Viewing This Administration As an Existential Threat to Israel”
Earlier this week the Obama Administration leaked information on a secret Israel-Azerbaijan Alliance. According to a Foreign Policy report based on “four senior diplomats and military intelligence officers” Azerbaijan has given Israel permission to land planes on Azeri airfields after an attack on Iranian nuclear sites. The Obama Administration endangered the two countries by leaking this information to the press.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lectures Barack Obama in the Oval Office on the dangers facing Israel back in May 2011.
On Friday a former Marine Corps strike planner weighed in on the implications of this leak Friday on The Mark Levin Show. In light of this latest leak, the Marine told Mark Levin, “I would start viewing this administration as an existential threat to Israel.”
Doug Ross reported:
You have to ask for the motivation behind the leak. I mean, if the Israelis can do this operation, it’s to our benefit! From a diplomatic standpoint, if you wanted to tell the Iranians that the Israelis did this, it’s without our permission. And then try to butter up the Iranians after the strike, so they don’t close the Strait of Hormuz, that’s one thing.
But giving away all of the secrets of an ally? When you’re doing that, you have to ask whether we still have Israel as an ally. We are not acting like an ally. In fact, if you ask me, based on the amount of time I expect the Israelis put in this relationship with Azerbaijan, I would start viewing this administration as an existential threat to Israel.
In early March, an administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told reporters, “We’re trying to make the decision to attack as hard as possible for Israel.”
