President Obama has reaffirmed a 4-decade-old secret understanding that has allowed Israel to keep a nuclear arsenal without opening it to international inspections, three officials familiar with the understanding said.
The officials, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because they were discussing private conversations, said Mr. Obama pledged to maintain the agreement when he first hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House in May.
Under the understanding, the U.S. has not pressured Israel to disclose its nuclear weapons or to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which could require Israel to give up its estimated several hundred nuclear bombs.
TVNL Comment: Another US administration owned and controlled by Israel. Israel may break any international law. They are exempt from playing by the rules be they the Geneva Conventions, international laws or the laws of common Human decency. Every American pays a price for our one way hypocritical relationship of with the nation that by all appearances yields enormous control over our government.
