‘Surprised’ White House bristles after Netanyahu abruptly cancels trip to Washington

WASHINGTON — A “surprised” White House bristled Monday after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu abruptly cancelled a trip to Washington.

The U.S. insisted that President Barack Obama had offered a meeting but was turned down.

Israel on Tuesday disputed the White House claim that Netanyahu “surprised” the Obama administration by cancelling the visit, saying that the White House knew Netanyahu was considering not coming.

    I don’t know how the WH can be surprised, considering the way Obama & company have treated the Israelis. I wouldn’t want to show up either.

    • I’d have mailed Obama a bag of shit with my condolences.

  • Why deal with TWO idiots as opposed to one?

    Even Netanyahu has his limits.
