Update -- Why Does Obama Hate Israel?

Earlier today, I posted about the how the Obama White House is planting news items in the media that Israel spied on the talks between the USA and Iran about the Iranian nuclear program.  The focus was on how Israel had spied on the USA.  I have to admit that I missed something important in the story.  Here's how the Wall Street Journal put it:

The White House discovered the operation, in fact, when U.S. intelligence agencies spying on Israel intercepted communications among Israeli officials that carried details the U.S. believed could have come only from access to the confidential talks, officials briefed on the matter said.

There is still no proof offered that Israel spied on the USA here.  The Israelis could have gotten information from the French, English, German, Russian or Chinese negotiators who are also part of these talks.  What there is, however, is confirmation that under Obama, the USA is spying on Israel.  Only someone like Obama could feign outrage at another country for spying on the USA while the USA is doing the same thing.

Look, in my opinion, neither Israel nor America should spy on the other.  But it is really ridiculous, even for our immature president to get upset if an ally is spying us while we spy on it.
