President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meet at the White House behind closed doors. Private meetings do not seem all that unusual to me, but supposedly Chuck Todd mentioned no photos at all with the two.
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday at the White House — his first meeting with the Israeli leader since the recent spat over Israel’s announcement of new housing construction for east Jerusalem.
However, the afternoon meeting will be closed to reporters, an unusual choice when hosting a close ally and a sign that suggested the rift may not be entirely healed.
No photos from when they first meet in November either.
The White House has not released any official photos of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s meeting this week with President Obama – just one of several signs indicating a rift between the two leaders.
I thought Israel was a friend of the United States? I thought the United States was a friend of Israel?
No problem for the Obama administration concerning the release of photographs with goofballs like Hugo Chavez from Venezuela.
