US Officials: Israel Restocked Ammo During Gaza Offensive Without White House Approval

Israel secured supplies of ammunition from the Pentagon last month without the approval of the White House or the State Department, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

Since officials there were caught off guard as they tried to restrain Israel's campaign in Gaza, the administration of President Barack Obama has tightened controls on arms shipments to Israel, the newspaper said, quoting U.S. and Israeli officials.

But the case illustrated that the White House and the State Department had little influence over the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the paper said, quoting officials from both countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Israel is a thief, stealing from the American people, who were forced to pay for all those weapons.

Worse, the White House didn't catch Israel in the theft!

So, what will the US Government do about it?

Nothing!

As usual.

What can Obama do?

StingRay

He volunteered to be President, not a dead hero like JFK.
