Bolton: ‘Implicitly Threatening to Israel’

by Robert Costa

John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, tells National Review Online that he has concerns about President Obama’s speech this afternoon on the Middle East.

“Despite criticism of the Palestinians, the speech is also implicitly threatening to Israel,” Bolton says. “Remarks such as the references to the 1967 borders show Obama’s continuing lack of real appreciation for Israel’s security.”
