Editorial of The New York Sun ~
Prime Minister Netanyahu’s summit meeting with President Obama turned out to have quite a satisfactory outcome, as far as we’re concerned, in that, at least from what one can deduce from the public record, Israel has gained a green light to do what it wants in respect of Iran. It is true Mr. Obama offered cautionary words about loose talk of war and expressed his preference for a diplomatic solution. But in his interview with Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic, the president made a point of declaring that he tries constantly to reinforce the assumption that “we’ve got Israel’s back.” He reiterated the point to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. What else can that mean in plain language other than that America will cover Israel’s back come the battle?
