The immediate issue was White House anger over Netanyahu’s taking advantage of the information on the US negotiating stance to interfere – again – in US domestic politics. But the Ignatius account also provides further evidence that the Obama administration still feels it necessary to clear every significant diplomatic move on Iran with Netanyahu, whose openly declared aim is to prevent any agreement from being reached.
