Eye of the beholder.....
The racist right again worked up over a rumor and not a confirmed fact.
See the Craigslist of conservative agitation calls this a paper and not a website. That's the first misleading thing to read on that racist watering hole.
See they don't rely on the Associated Press, Reuters or the American media sources. Heck the agitators can get the Agence France-Presse as a reliable foreign source. They would believe a foreign website that got its sources from another foreign source. Obviously, you can't believe everything off the internet.
But the racist right regardless will believe it.
Like I seriously don't often go off on this stuff. But the lies and countless misinformation campaign led by conservative agitators is seriously graying the fact-checkers.
They're worked up over a report that President Barack Obama may order U.S. warships to down Israeli jets if they attempt to attack Iranian nuclear facilities.
But here's the kicker, it was in early 2014. So why hasn't this been mention in the American junk food media?
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Al-Jarida quoted "well-placed" sources as saying that Netanyahu, along with Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, and then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, had decided to carry out airstrikes against Iran's nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders.
According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army's chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran's nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security.”

So this is an alleged report of the president threatening American military action on Israeli jets.
Anyone who supports a foreign leader over an American president should renounce their American citizenship and declare their allegiance to that country.
No kidding. I don't care what political party our president represents. We are Americans, we declare our loyalty to the United States, not a foreign country.
You can go at the president on policy and every other outrage mustered up. But to just take the side of foreign leaders is just an example of the pot calling the kettle black.
I don't support foreign leaders regardless of who they are!
