Former UN Ambassador says U.S. Trying to Stop Israel From Attacking Iran

Former United States ambassador to the UN John Bolton said last week that the purpose of visiting Israel for General Martin Dempsey, U.S. National Security Advisor Thomas Danilon, and Director of Intelligence Tom Clapper was to dissuade the Jewish state from attacking Iran.

The U.S. officials, Bolton said, are operating under the assumption that any meeting between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the near future will not go well. Netanyahu will visit Washington D.C. in March to address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.

“It may be one of those meetings where Netanyahu doesn’t get a sandwich and a cup of coffee at the White House, but they have to have it,” Bolton said, according to the Israel National News. “We’ve to confront the reality that if we don’t, or if someone doesn’t act, Iran will get nuclear weapons and then there won’t be any point in sanctions or diplomacy,” he added.
