Get ready for a whole new round of "secret Muslim."

According to Haaretz, The Obama administration is quietly briefing and preparing key Dem Congress members for blowback over Israel policy.
In recent weeks, American officials have briefed senior Democratic congressmen and prepared the ground for the possibility of disagreements with Israel over the peace process, according to information recently received.

There's all kinds of stuff here, but my main question would be, who in Congress is leaking this back to Israeli sources?


  • "...who in Congress is leaking this back to Israeli sources?"

    Seriously? I'm thinking someone from CT.

  • The comments on that Ha-aretz article are interesting. Never see stuff like that in US media.

  • And yet there's this from the "secret Muslim." Will Obama be able to politically separate the religious from the political in Israel? Probably not. But I think the White House Seder is impressive... for it's precedence, if nothing else. Though I hope (and expect) it's sincere.

  • Actually, I think it's more than one sending back to Israel, staffers and Congressmen, and everybody.

    But, my point was that US Hill figures are leaking to another country information of negotiations.

    The Obama folks certainly expected it, and probably couched their language accordingly, but still....

  • "...sending back to Israel, ..."

    This is a detail I originally missed. And a point that makes this issue somewhat shocking.

  • Maybe what's shocking is that it's being discussed openly.

  • Yeah.
