Obama Statement on Signing of New Memorandum of Understanding With Israel
Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) today released the following statement on the news that the United States agreed to provide $30 billion in military aid to Israel over the next decade:
"The Administration's failed policies in Iraq, in a war that never should have been authorized, have strengthened Iran and emboldened Hamas and Hezbollah. That makes it more important than ever that the United States live up to its commitment to ensure Israel's qualitative military edge in a dangerous region. For that reason, I support the agreement on military assistance reached today."
