White House National Security advisor Tom Donilon's three days of high-level talks in Israel ended on Sunday after he failed to extract a pledge from the Israelis not to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. According to Debkafile, Obama has invited Netanyahu to meet him at the White House on March 5 hoping that personal contact might do the trick. Personally I think this is pure political theater so Obama will appear to have done all he could to avert war before Israel attacks. Israel faces an existential threat and will do what it must to survive: To me that means attacking Iran early in March. By then Obama will appear to have done all he reasonably could to avoid war, and can aid Israel militarily at the least political cost to himself.
