    Report: Obama sells bunker-buster bombs to Israel

    President Obama secretly agreed to sell Israel 55 bunker-busting bombs, according to a Newsweek report.

    Much has been made of Obama's tense relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The president pressured the Israelis to cease building settlements in the West Bank. And Obama has been accused by Republicans of being hostile to Israel's security concerns.

    With the sale of deep-penetrating bombs called GBU-28 Hard Target Penetrators, Obama is satisfying a weapons request Israel first made during the Bush administration.

    Israel's request for bunker-busters in 2005 was denied. At the time, the Defense Department had frozen most military sales to Israel because of concerns Israel was transferring advanced military technology to China.

    Pentagon officials apparently had a change of heart.

    no matter what you vomit in your election speech, you are made to do what has to be done.
    obama over estimated its potential to change the world and take out america from middle east quick sand. its not easy, its not a speech to school kids that do your homework blah blah.
    usa can only function well when headed by an ex-servicemen not a barrister.

    Well, after all, only the Clinton administration was allowed to transfer advanced military technology to China.
