IT'S THE SORT OF THING FRIENDS DO FOR EACH OTHER:

Israel Blames U.S. for Media Reports About Iran Strategy (Eli Lake, Apr 6, 2012, Daily Beast)

Top officials in Israel are charging that national-security leaks coming from the U.S. government are undermining Israel's military options against Iran. "The problem is the Iranians are certainly paying close attention to these reports," a senior Israeli official told The Daily Beast. "We are concerned about the leaks and we hope they are not intentional."

The latest such leak appeared March 28 on Foreign Policy magazine's website, claiming that Israel had been granted secret access to airbases in Azerbaijan near Iran's northern border. The piece was sourced to senior U.S. diplomats and military-intelligence officers.

Even though Bibi is just blustering, the Administration needs to back him down from his own rhetoric.
