So, remember that hit-piece-esque article by Jeffrey Goldberg about deteriorating U.S.-Israeli relations? The one where he repeatedly says that a “senior administration official” referred to Benjamin Netanyahu as “a chickenshit”? Well, Goldberg would just like to make it clear that the nasty insult wasn’t the point of his piece:
Point of my piece: Israel can survive and flourish without sticking its finger in Obama's eye: http://t.co/2UJpScLeD4

Right. Do you buy that? Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol sure doesn’t, and he let Goldberg know:
.@JeffreyGoldberg With all due respect, this is chickenshit.

That just about sums it up, yep.
