Israel’s Iron Dome? Obama created that! (according to John Kerry)

John Kerry lied again this morning, but you knew that because his lips were moving:

“As I said, the prime minister is welcome in the United States at any time. We have an unparalleled close security relationship with Israel and we will continue to. President Obama has done more to ensure the security of Israel by the creation of Iron Dome, by the development of weapons that are specifically calculated to be able to deal with Iran’s nuclear weapon’s problem…[etc].”

It’s at the 8-minute mark:

President Obama created the Iron Dome, eh?

In 2004, the idea for Iron Dome gained momentum with the installation of Brig. Gen. Daniel Gold as the head of the research and development bureau of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Gold was a strong backer of the antimissile project, even skirting army contracting regulations to secure financing. He also helped persuade key politicians to support the project.

Wow, Obama had a lot of global pull considering he was only a state senator from Illinois back then!

Kerry’s such an ass.
