Obama, it seems, isn't having it, and is preferring a more flexible course of action.
There was already an angry exchange between Israel and his ambassador. Hillary Clinton too.
Remember the plan was to take down 7 countries in the ME and it was concocted in the 90's. So I think this is pandering for the election. Of course the NeoCons think it's a win/win for Obama if he strikes now. Most Americans, per polls, don't think like NCs though.
