The Obama Administration Repeatedly Leaked Intel To Spite Israel

"In March 2012, four unnamed intelligence officials revealed details about Israel’s access to air bases in Azerbaijan in an effort to protect Iran from a potential Israeli strike. By doing so, the Obama administration prioritized its relationship with Iran, the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism, over Israel — a longtime ally to the United States with a stable, democratic government in a region that’s otherwise plagued with volatility."
The spiteful, vindictive, petulant Obama on display for the left to admire.

The Federalist

. . . "In 2013, the Department of Defense quietly declassified an intelligence report revealing details about Israel’s secret nuclear program. The timing is significant, as it occurred around the same time tensions between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rapidly escalated, suggesting this may have been a swipe at Israel.
"The decision to declassify the report was a startling change in diplomatic protocol, as the United States had kept quiet about Israel’s development of nuclear arms for decades. Israel itself has never publicly acknowledged its nuclear program, for fear that it could escalate tensions in the region.
"Several months later, an Obama administration official told the press that Israel had carried out a strike on a Syrian military base, CNN reported. Israel did not take credit for the attack, and Israeli officials were “furious” about this leak, which reportedly came directly from the White House." . . .
It may be time for an "apology tour" to America's allies by President Trump.
