Obama in Israel, Truth be Told (in Advance)

Maybe it’s standard practice. Still, I find a full dress rehearsal prior to Obama’s arrival in Jerusalem nothing short of hilarious. The implication, of course, given the terribly strained relationship between Obama and and the obstinate Netanyahu, is that the whole scripted exercise will be not much more than that.
