Benjamin Netanyahu, “The man many tip to be Israel’s next leader.”

>>”President-elect Obama spoke to me about his view that Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons is unacceptable,” Netanyahu told Reuters in a brief. “I say that what counts is the goal and the result that he envisions and the way that he achieves that goal is less important,” said Netanyahu, a former prime minister. <<

Now there is a Spinnmeister Supreme.

Netanyahu once threw a public tantrum when Ambassador Walters wouldn’t let him use the classified telephone at the US Mission to the United Nations (Such telephones are reserved for U.S. citizens with high security clearances).

“Everybody else let me use it,” he roared. So maybe not every word that comes out of his mouth can be trusted.
