Maybe this administration thinks that whole “Israel being a longtime ally of the United States” era was overrated, because as Israel battles Hamas, Team Obama is shoring up its defense of… John Kerry:

The Obama administration pushed back strongly Monday at a torrent of Israeli criticism over Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest bid to secure a cease-fire with Hamas, accusing some in Israel of launching a “misinformation campaign” against the top American diplomat.

“It’s simply not the way partners and allies treat each other,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Her comments were echoed by the White House, where National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the U.S. was “dismayed” by mischaracterizations of Kerry’s efforts. Israeli media reports have cast Kerry as seeking a cease-fire that is more favorable to Hamas and being dismissive of key Israeli concerns.

To help protect John Kerry from “unfair” Israeli criticism, the Obama administration has gotten to work on plans to construct an “Iron DOHM” (Diplomatic Operation Has Mishap) that will automatically deploy when incoming verbal or written attacks are detected.
