I suspect Israel’s Netanyahu knew Obama would continue to disrespect him. However, by appealing directly to Congress, Bibi forced Obama to work harder towards an agreement with teeth.
He knew that Obama planned to capitulate to Iran; simply agreeing to look the way as long as the Bomb didn’t go off before 2016. Now, Obama is on record responding to Netanyahu’s concerns. So he has to work at a REAL agreement.
Well played Israel.
