Israeli Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Ehud Barak gave President Obama a full-throated endorsement in regards to his administration's committment to the security of Israel on Monday.
In an interview scheduled to air this evening on CNN's 'The Situation Room,' Barak told Wolf Blitzer that the Obama administration was even surpassing previous administrations in their backing of Israel:
"I think that from my point of view as defense minister they are extremely good, extremely deep and profound. I can see long years, um, administrations of both sides of political aisle deeply supporting the state of Israeli and I believe that reflects a profound feeling among the American people," said Barak. "But I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing in regard to our security more than anything that I can remember in the past."
