AP Reporter grills Obama Administration spokeswomen on Israel

Shocking, I know. While terrorists bombs and rockets rain down on Israel, the Obama Administration has been characteristically silent, refusing even to comment yesterday when Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan called Israel "a terrorist state". What prompted this outrageous statement from nominal NATO ally Turkey was, presumably, Israel’s decision to defend itself from the recent unprovoked and repeated acts of terror. Team Obama’s decision to greet Erdogan’s idiotic assertion with little more than a yawn was too much for Associated Press reporter Matt Lee, and he really takes it to State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland over Obama’s so-called "silent diplomacy". Via The Blaze:

This follows Team Obama’s September refusal to acknowledge that Israel’s capital is in fact Israel’s capital. Finally at least one member of the media has deigned to ask this administration a question other than "What’s your favorite workout song?" or "What’s your favorite chili?". Maybe the rest of the mainstream media will wake up and begin asking real questions on, for example, Benghazi or the ticking entitlement time bomb. I’m not holding my breath, of course, but one can hope.
