PM Binyamin Netanyahu and Larry King "Fencing" Around The Chess Board
I caught the end of the "Larry King Live Exclusive" interview with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (transcript.) The verbal choreography was fascinating. Call it fencing or chess or some combination of both. Here's the link to the interview. And here should be the interview or excerpts.
It's no secret that I admire Bibi's intelligence and talent, but I'm horrendously disappointed in how he's wasting it.
There were some interesting questions. King asked Netanyahu with whom would he negotiate, and Bibi replied anyone who isn't trying to destroy us. He frequently asked what the US would do if in our situation, a good point.
Netanyahu was asked if he ever takes time off, and answered that on Shabbat he learns Bible with his prize-winning fifteen year old son.
On the whole it's a good interview. The problem is that's all it is, just words, an interview.
