Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US Ambassador Dan Shapiro did engage in a sharp, undiplomatic exchange last Friday over Netanyahu’s frustration with the Obama Administration’s Iran policy, the US congressman in that meeting said Thursday.
Republican Congressman Mike Rogers from Michigan, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, told a Michigan radio station that the “sharp exchange” was “unusual, to say the least.”
According to transcribed segments of the interview that appeared on Jeffrey Goldberg’s blog, Rogers – when asked whether it was inaccurate to say the exchange was a shouting match – replied that “there were elevated concerns on behalf of the Israelis.”
