I’ve wondered why Obama refused to meet Israeli PM Netanyahu pre-election?
It’s clear to me now: Israeli intel must have known CIA called the Benghazi attack terrorism as it happened and Israeli intel must have known of the Petraeus affair (Cantor’s office knew).
In order for Obama to keep the stain off his dress that he knew nothing of the CIA’s "AQ terrorism" claim which was scrubbed from the narrative and, Obama needed to not discus Petraeus with anyone outside his inner circle.
A pre-election meeting with Netanyahu would have been frank. Benghazi and Petraeus would have been discussed leaving the Israeli PM party to conversations regarding a subject Obama wanted to be able to claim he never knew of.
