The Obama Administration’s reassessment of its relationship with Israel continues with the declassification of Israel’s nuclear program.
This comes amidst accusations from the Obama Administration against Israel spying on its nuclear negotiations with Iran. The Obama Administration, of course, found this out by spying on Israel.
It’s true that Israel’s nuclear program has been an open secret and yet previous presidential administrations, Democrat and Republican, still officially kept it a secret. Say what you will about Israel’s nuclear program. Israel developed it not to threaten its neighbors, but to deter them. The U.S. and the rest of the civilized world understood that. The same cannot be said of Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
It is worth noting that while the Obama Administration released Israel’s nuclear information it redacted information in the 1987 document on the nuclear programs in West Germany, Italy, France and other NATO allies.
And why? The Obama Administration bases its foreign policy decisions on Israel out of spite. Making foreign policy decisions out of spite is both dangerous and foolish.
