Obama Stops Israel Weapons Transfer

White House and State Department officials were reportedly caught by surprise when they found out that the Pentagon was sending military supplies to Israel without approval from the White House. As a result, the White House has now decided that any munitions request from Israel requires White House and State Department approval. Apparently the issue came to a head when an Israeli shell hit a UN school sheltering 3,000 people, and on the same day it was reported that U.S. munitions had been released to the Israeli military.
