The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” this official said, referring to the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, by his nickname.This comment is representative of the gloves-off manner in which American and Israeli officials now talk about each other behind closed doors...
Well, Netanyahu may be telling Kerry, that guy gets identified and fired first. And second, he wants to know who called him

The Reuters and Associated Press news services confirmed that report TuesdayNetanyahu already dealt with that.
Why Baratz may think Kerry is an 'idiot'.
