Is this for real or some Zionist psyop BS?
Administration blocks helicopters for Israel due to civilian casualties in Gaza May 27, 2009
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has blocked Israel's request for advanced U.S.-origin attack helicopters.
Government sources said the administration has held up Israel's request for the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter. The sources said the request was undergoing an interagency review to determine whether additional Longbow helicopters would threaten Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip.
"During the recent war, Israel made considerable use of the Longbow, and there were high civilian casualties in the Gaza Strip," a source close to the administration said.
The sources said Israel has sought to purchase up to six new AH-64Ds in an effort to bolster conventional and counter-insurgency capabilities. They said Israel wants to replenish its fleet after the loss of two Apache helicopters in the 2006 war with Hizbullah.
Israel's Defense Ministry and air force have discussed procurement of additional Longbows with the U.S. firm Boeing. But the sources said the Longbow as well as other defense requests have been shelved by the administration amid its review of the potential use of American weapons platforms by Israel.
I don't know if this is a legit story or some Zio-propaganda. Until I see Gestapo Chief "Heinrich" Foxman screaming anti-Semitism or the Tel Aviv Washington Post pontificating on what this means for poor, brave and fighting against all odds Israel, then I'll have to assume this is some finely crafted Israeli psyops.
Add in the World Tribune.com content partners, like the Drudge Report, Newsmax and Zionist think tanks, the Hoover and Hudson Institute and one should take a LARGE grain of salt with this story.
