Democracy Now: Obama Dismisses Israeli Pressure of Iran War as “Noise”

In an interview with 60 Minutes, President Obama made what could be his most public rejection of the Israeli government to date. Asked about unrelenting Israeli pressure for a military attack on Iran, Obama suggested that such talk is “noise” that he ignores.

Steve Kroft: “You’re saying you don’t feel any pressure from Prime Minister Netanyahu in the middle of a campaign to try and get you to change your policy and draw a line in the sand? You don’t feel any pressure?”

President Obama: “When it comes to our national security decisions, any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people, and I am going to block out any noise that’s out there.”
