Friday on Fox News Channel ‘s “Shepard Smith Reporting,” “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace said he was shocked by Speaker of the House John Boehner’s (R-OH) “wicked” invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress without informing the Obama Administration.
Wallace said, “I happened to be the White House on Wednesday when Boehner announced that he invited, and Netanyahu accepted this. A top White House official was flabbergasted. He said ‘We got no advance warning on this. We found out about it, the White House, when Boehner announced it to the press.’ And to make you get a sense of really how, forgive me, wicked, this whole thing is, the Secretary of State John Kerry met with the Israeli Ambassador to the United States for two hours on Tuesday, Ron Dermer. The ambassador, never mentioned the fact that Netanyahu was in negotiations and finally agreed to come to Washington, not to see the president, but to go to Capitol Hill, speak to a joint session of congress and criticize the president’s policy. I have to say I’m shocked. ”
