Obama: Israel should sign NPT

OMG.  Obama is an Iranian tool!

When Obama was pressed on the question of Israeli nukes at the nuclear summit, he first hemmed, hawed, and balked:

“Initially you were talking about US behavior, and then suddenly we’re talking about Israel. Let me talk about the United States,” the president said. “I do think that as part of the NPT, our obligation, as the largest nuclear power in the world, is to take steps to reducing our nuclear stockpile. And that’s what the START treaty was about, sending a message that we are going to meet our obligations…as far as Israel goes, I’m not going to comment on their program.”

Well, why not comment on their program that they don’t even have?

He went on:

“What I’m going to point to is the fact that consistently we have urged all countries to become members of the NPT. So there’s no contradiction there,” he said. “And so whether we’re talking about Israel or any other country, we think that becoming part of the NPT is important.  And that, by the way, is not a new position. That’s been a consistent position of the United States government, even prior to my administration.”

Kudos to the president.  Wingnut heads will explode.

Update: Israel responds.

“The policy of ambiguity is the foundation of Israel’s security; it has always been and will continue to be. President Obama did not ask to change it in the current period,” Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told public radio.

Nukes?  What nukes?  Israel who?

  2. some noise, but each time he’s backed down.

  3. … a matter best held in a state of “ambiguity” to some people.

    Once one takes the position that the truth doesn’t matter and need not be acknowledged, where does it end?

    Denying the obvious facts everyone else in the world know very well: such a good foundation for policy, isn’t it.
