obama stares at netanyahu

Hey Barack: Bibi won!

Via Washington Times.

The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.

Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.

In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.

He said he regularly deleted emails with large attachments — a striking violation of open-records laws for a department already reeling from former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of official government records….

The State Department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

    One of the more infuriating things the Dumb Bastard has done. Can we write in Netanyahu in November?

    That racist, bigot, anti-Semitic POS can’t vacate the peoples house soon enough to suit me…. I hope Trump throws a big party and invites Bibi to celebrate… my new mantra is to be as anti-politically correct as I can be ~~~ where’s the swear jar? ~~~

    In other State Dept. ‘leadership’ news: John Kerry left the weekend NATO discussion (where Obama was) to attend the last performance of Hamilton by its creator/star. And denies that Kerry did so by saying that he left to attend some wedding. Next time Kerry On NATO says that the Iran deal is good, sacrifice for climate change, etc., ask him how he liked the play.
