WASHINGTON (AP) — In what is becoming an increasingly nasty grudge match, the White House is mulling ways to undercut Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's upcoming trip to Washington and blunt his message that a potential nuclear deal with Iran is bad for Israel and the world.

There are limits. Administration officials have discarded the idea of President Barack Obama himself giving an Iran-related address to rebut the two speeches Netanyahu is to deliver during his early March visit. But other options remain on the table.

Among them: a presidential interview with a prominent journalist known for coverage of the rift between Obama and Netanyahu, multiple Sunday show television appearances by senior national security aides and a pointed snub of America's leading pro-Israel lobby, which is holding its annual meeting while Netanyahu is in Washington, according to the officials.

The administration has already ruled out meetings between Netanyahu and Obama, saying it would be inappropriate for the two to meet so close to Israel's March 17 elections. But the White House is now doubling down on a cold-shoulder strategy, including dispatching Cabinet members out of the country and sending a lower-ranking official than normal to represent the administration at the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the officials said.

Vice President Joe Biden will be away, his absence behind Netanyahu conspicuous in coverage of the speech to Congress. Other options were described by officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss internal deliberations.

Netanyahu's plan for a March 3 address to a joint meeting of Congress has further strained already tense ties between the U.S. and Israel. Congressional Republicans orchestrated Netanyahu's visit without consulting the White House or State Department, a move the Obama administration blasted as a break in diplomatic protocol. Some Democratic lawmakers say they will boycott the speech.

U.S. officials believe Netanyahu's trip to Washington is aimed primarily at derailing a nuclear deal with Iran, Obama's signature foreign policy objective. While Netanyahu has long been skeptical of the negotiations, his opposition has increased over what he sees as Obama's willingness to make concessions that would leave Iran on the brink of being able to build a nuclear weapon. His opposition has intensified as negotiations go into overdrive with an end-of-March deadline for a framework deal.

Netanyahu should stay out of American politics. He isn't helping himself or his state.

Deep in the heart of Texas.
The Obama administration will go all out to battle Netanyahu but not ISIS. I would say this is shocking except sadly it isn't.
Did you hear that he was born in Kenya too? :eek:
Sorry I don't buy into the idiocy of either the far right or left however Obama's actions and words in regards to Netanyahu and ISIS speak for themselves.

Why does the White House feel the need to "battle" with the leader of an allied nation?

We all know you and Obama hate Jews. You've made your point quite clearly (repeatedly).

BTW, relations between the US and Israel are NOT strained.
Obama is the one with the problem. He has made it abundantly clear that he has no respect nor liking for Netanyahu....
And that is based on Netayahu's refusal to kowtow to Obama's whims.

Look at Netanyahu biting the hand that feeds. Not good bibi.
HUH? ( Laughing) Do you really think Obama's little hissy fit is going to do any harm to our relationship with Israel?
Once Obama is gone, this little Obama generated spat is OVER.

Really? What world leader has ever been sorry to negotiate with obie? Fucking seriously, he gives them everything they want no matter what. I'm guessing there's a good chance you may be right this time, he will probably fuck over one of our greatest allies. And suck Iran's dick at the same time.
