Biden Knew Israel Was Indiscriminately Bombing Gaza, Pandered To Netanyahu Until Backlash: US Report

US President Biden was reportedly aware of Israel indiscriminately bombing Gaza but continued to defend the country’s military’s actions. The Washington Post reported that 3 weeks into the war in October, top Biden officials admitted to Israel’s indiscriminate bombing without solid intelligence. US officials, in a private meeting, accepted that Israel was regularly bombing buildings without solid intelligence that they were legitimate military targets. The officials also expressed concern that Israeli military lacked a plan for defeating Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Did Biden change tone on Israel over fear of political consequences? Did US misrepresent classified intel to back Israeli bombing of al-Shifa?
