U.S. Officials Think Netanyahu Is ‘Aspergery’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the weekly cabinet meeting on February 17, 2013 in Jerusalem, Israel. Netanyahu made a statement reaffirming his trust in the Israeli security forces and asking that they be spared undue media attention, a response made in relation to the 'Prisoner X' affair in which the suicide in Ayalon Prison of an Australin immigrant to Israel is speculated to have been espionage related and with Mossad involvement.

That’s just one of the terms Atlantic national correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg says he’s heard Obama administration officials use to describe the Israeli prime minister. Others include “recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous,” and … “chickenshit.” This bodes well for U.S.-Israel relations.
