Bibi: If Iran nuke deal is so great, why is Obama hiding it?

Israel and the White House kept sparring over the Iranian issue Monday, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying that if the emerging agreement with Tehran is a good one, why hide the details.

Netanyahu’s comments at the annual meeting in Jerusalem of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations came the same day that the Washington Post’s David Ignatius reported that the US had decided to “reduce the exchange of sensitive information about the Iran talks” because of a concern that Netanyahu’s office had leaked “sensitive details” of the US position.

Just as Iran knows what agreement it is being offered, it is only natural that Israel should know as well since it is the most threatened by a nuclear Iran, Netanyahu said, adding that Israel’s consistent position is that the proposed accords are a danger to Israel’s security.

“But if there is someone who thinks it is a good deal, why is there a need to hide it?” he asked.
