Israel And Its
Lobby Lose The Iran Deal All Over Again, In News Of
Damning Wiretaps

" -  You’d think that there would be widespread
outrage over the story everyone’s talking about
today, the

Wall Street Journal scoop
that the Obama
administration spied on Israeli Prime Minister
Netanyahu during the Iran Deal negotiations so as to
counter his efforts to sink it. The wiretaps reveal
that Israeli officials were up to their necks in the
US political process; they “coordinated talking
points with Jewish-American groups against the deal;
and asked undecided lawmakers what it would take to
win their votes, according to current and former
officials familiar with the intercepts.”
The president
approved the wiretaps.
Privately,
Mr. Obama maintained the monitoring of Mr.
Netanyahu on the grounds that it served a
“compelling national security purpose,”
according to current and former U.S. officials.
That’s right;
there’s a compelling national interest in stopping
the Israel lobby.
Many have said
that President Obama lacks spine? Well, it sure
looks like the leak to reporters Adam Entous and
Danny Yadron came from the administration, and it’s
hard to believe that a leak of this magnitude was
not approved by the president. Just when the Israel
lobby thought that it was starting to get back to
business as usual, the Obama administration has
reminded them that something has fundamentally
changed in the U.S.-Israel relationship. Not only
did we beat the lobby and Israel on the Iran Deal,
but: we’re exposing your tactics, and patriotic
Americans are going to be very upset by what they
see...

Some thirteen years after the event, the shadow of
the

9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center
in Manhattan and the Pentagon still darkens our
world. The legacy of that terrible day has impacted
not only our foreign policy, bequeathing to a new
generation an apparently

endless "war on terrorism," it also has led
directly to what is arguably the most

massive assault on our civil liberties since the
Alien and Sedition Acts. Getting all the information
about what happened that day – and why it happened –
is key to understanding the cou…
