Israel Spying

FILE - In this March 5, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama meets with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. Washington's political praise has reached a crescendo ahead of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's anticipated visit this weekend with Netanyahu in Israel. Their relationship has spanned decades, since their brief overlap in the 1970s at the Boston Consulting Group. Both worked as advisers for the firm early in their careers, before Romney co-founded his own private-equity firm. Romney in a speech this week called Israel “one of our fondest friends,” and criticized President Barack Obama over what he called the administration's “shabby treatment” of Israel.
