Psaki Suggests Biden Could Have Cut Israel Arms Sooner, Shift in Military Ties Noted

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki appeared on CBS’s “The Late Show” to share her thoughts that President Joe Biden could have stopped supplying weapons to Israel sooner. Psaki suggested that leveraging tactics could have been implemented earlier, but noted that the reduction in weapon shipments signifies a significant shift in the U.S.-Israel military relationship.

Biden, on CNN, stated a firm stance in not providing offensive weapons for attacks on Rafah – a move that drew attention and praise from critics of Israel’s military actions.

When questioned about the history of withholding weapons, Psaki acknowledged that while it has occurred occasionally, it is not a common practice. She hinted at a strained relationship between Biden and Prime Minister Netanyahu, emphasizing the importance of diplomatic efforts behind closed doors.

Psaki touched on the complexity of diplomacy, emphasizing the need for discretion in discussions to avoid disrupting ongoing negotiations. She highlighted Biden’s upcoming address at Morehouse University as a positive step towards engaging with young voices, hinting at further outreach efforts in the coming months.
