Obama Sticks Another Knife Into The Back of Israel

    Obama is a real son of a bitch.

    TEL AVIV, Israel — Israel’s military fumed Monday over the discovery that the U.S. government had revealed details of a top-secret Israeli military installation in published bid requests.

    The Obama administration had promised to build Israel a state-of-the-art facility to house a new ballistic-missile defense system, the Arrow 3. As with all Defense Department projects, detailed specifications were made public so that contractors could bid on the $25 million project. The specifications included more than 1,000 pages of details on the facility, ranging from the heating and cooling systems to the thickness of the walls.

    "If an enemy of Israel wanted to launch an attack against a facility, this would give him an easy how-to guide. This type of information is closely guarded and its release can jeopardize the entire facility," said an Israeli military official who commented on the publication of the proposal but declined to be named because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the facility. He declined to say whether plans for the facility have been altered as a result of the disclosure.

    "This is more than worrying, it is shocking," he said.

    Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Wesley Miller said he couldn’t comment on the specifics of the Arrow 3 base, but he said the United States routinely published the details of its construction plans on a federal business opportunities website so that contractors could estimate the costs of jobs. He said such postings often might be revised after contracts were approved.

    Israeli officials appear to have been well aware of the danger of outsourcing building projects to the United States. In an interview with the Reuters news agency in March, Lt. Col. Peleg Zeevi, the head of the bidding process at Israel’s Defense Ministry, justified Israel’s long history of relying on the United States to help build military installations by saying that Israel needed "a player that has the knowledge, ability and experience."

    "We are aware of the security issues that arise in deals with foreign firms, but because we want real competition and expertise, we will create conditions that will allow and encourage their participation," Zeevi said.

    It appears, however, that Israeli officials were caught by surprise that details of the facility at Tel Shahar, classified so top secret that Israel’s military won’t officially confirm its location between Jerusalem and Ashdod, would be made so public.

    I'm surprised Obama doesn't go ahead and just wear a turban on his head.

    I mean why bother trying to hide it now?

    President Obama was awarded Israel's Presidential Medal of Distinction Thursday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to receive the honor.

    “This is an extraordinary honor, and I could not be more deeply moved," Obama said at the ceremony, adding that he accepted the medal "on behalf of the American people."


  5. Funny how conservatives bitch about Obama on behalf of Israel but 70 % of Jewish voters voted for Obama to be re-elected 7 months ago and Israel awarded Obama their highest honor 3 months ago LOL !!!
  6. Yeah it's odd since Israel is socialist with socialized medicine and the global citizens on this board care more about foreigners than America. So they are anti socialist but always support foreign socialist, how do you expect to have it both ways. Obama guaranteed Israel $3 billion pr yr for 10 yrs, now much more do you need? You can't have your cake and eat it to. Can anyone explain to me why we continue giving foreign aid when private charities give far more, why borrow funds from foreigners to give to foreigners? Can't we stop some things during this economic downturn?bill
  7. i doubt you guys even bothered to read the article

    if you did , you certainly have trouble processing information.

    Neither of which mean anything.
  9. Maybe Obama isn't sticking knives in Israels back if they are giving him their highest honor and 70 % of Jews voted for him to be re-elected.According to your bullshit IQ charts Jews are smart (so are Asians who 70 % also voted for Obama) so you cant say they are stupid for supporting Obama.

    Maybe you and your pals should re think your positions .
