  • I'm Shocked, Shocked I Tell You!

    This is no big surprise at all, especially as Netanyahu is being investigated for at least one felony:

    Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that Israeli officials "played" President Donald Trump in their conversations with him, warning that a "healthy amount of skepticism" is needed in dealings with Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

    The comments came during a panel discussion at Harvard University in which Tillerson, who was fired by the president last year, touched on a variety of themes from his tenure, including Iran, his hiring freeze at the State Department and the unpredictable nature of Israel's longest-serving prime minister, Netanyahu.

    "They did that with the president on a couple of occasions, to persuade him that ‘We’re the good guys, they’re the bad guys,’" Tillerson said, according to the Harvard Gazette. "We later exposed it to the president so he understood, ‘You’ve been played.’”

    He cautioned that skepticism is necessary when dealing with Netanyahu, whom Tillerson called "a bit Machiavellian."

    The Israeli Prime Minister's office responded to the former secretary of state via Twitter, writing, "Secretary Tillerson, Israel *is* the good guy."

    Agree, no real surprise. How many times does a fired employee have nice things to say about the person that fired for thought.
