Open mic syndrome: problem for Israel?
The man now occupying the White House seems to be suffering from open mic syndrome. For a man so seasoned with technology, these gaffes are puzzling as well as troubling.
Open mic with Russia
The most recent occurrence
of this affliction were remarks to President Medvedev regarding missile
defense negotiations. We were all horrified to learn that Obama
intended to conduct negotiations that were to be deliberately stalled
until after the November elections – when he would have more
“flexibility”. Since the United States already has a very well-developed
missile strategy in place, the flexibility Obama was referring to
logically could only compromise the safety of this nation.
Open mic with Israel
Of course this isn’t the only manifestation of open mic syndrome that
has afflicted the man now occupying the White House. He was also struck
in his talks with French President Sarkozy. At that time Mr. Obama
revealed his disdain for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Open mic syndrome may be a curse for the man now occupying the White
House but it may be a blessing for the American people who have been
able to catch a glimpse of what this man is really thinking. It may also
be a warning for Israel.
Rumor now has it that Iran is now willing to negotiate with the US
and Israel about their nuclear development. Many think that this is
another Iranian stall. It could be. However, it could also be a stall
engineered by the White House until after the November elections when
Obama has more “flexibility.” Some may say this is paranoia but given
his past remarks, I believe it is a logical point to raise. Consider
that Obama, out of his own mouth, has made it clear that he is not a
friend of Israel – all I can say is: Israel beware!
