It is true that Bibi Netanyahu is skipping Obama's nuclear summit because he fears an ambush by Egypt and Turkey, which both want Israel's nukes on the table (what they really want, of course, is nukes of their own, and who wouldn't?), but Netanyahu wouldn't skip this meeting, I think, if he thought Obama had his back on opacity. If Ma'ariv has it right, though, this aspect of the "special relationship" might be coming to an end.
UPDATE: Ben Smith is reporting that the White House is denying the Ma'ariv visa story.
DOUBLE UPDATE: Roger Simon is also reporting that the the story in Ma'ariv is inaccurate.
But keep your eye on the general state of play between Israel and America on the subject of Israel's nukes.
