    Re: US Passes Strong Sanctions Against Iran

A curious tidbit from the Jerusalem Post:

Israel Radio reported that the [U.S.] State Department asked that Defense Minister Ehud Barak join the prime minister on his trip, so that all of the relevant issues may be discussed. Barak has not decided whether to fly to the US or not.

The Israeli Defense Minister, reluctant to accept an invitation to the U.S.? Maybe he’s busy. Maybe he doesn’t want to be grilled in detail on some of the plans he’s working on. Staying away provides deniability.

Even the initiation of the request by the U.S. side seems a little odd. Worried about a unilateral action by a client state, that Washington is not clued in on? It’s happened before, you know.
