Oh, the Exquisite Anguish of It All (Not): A Hopeychanger's Stab in the Back is Bound to Draw Blood

Melanie Phillips can barely her contain her disgust at Obama's latest possible feat of perfidy--the accusation that he or his minions leaked info intended to sabotage an Israeli strike on Iran. She writes:
Sabotaging an ally’s defences in this manner goes much further than Obama’s previous known position in trying to stop an Israeli attack on Iran. This actively assists Iran, and thus potentially places the lives of millions at risk from that regime’s deranged belligerency. Is this what Obama meant when he tried to reassure American Jews recently that
‘...when the chips are down, I have Israel’s back’?
And since Iran does not merely threaten Israel but is already at war with America and the west it has pledged to destroy, is this not in fact a knife in the back of the west itself?
When the chips are down, (or when the going gets tough, or when the chickens come home to roost, or when the swallows fly back to Capistrano, or whatever the cliche du jour is) Obama is far more interesting in covering his own arse than he is in protecting Israel's back. Heck, he doesn't much care for its front--and it's obvious he can't stand its front man, the "obnoxious" Bibi. Given that, I have felt from the get-go that Obama's "back" blather is as shallow and insincere as the man himself.
