Did Obama Backers Distort Israelis' Comments?

Several former Israeli Defense Forces and Mossad officials are saying that the pro-Obama group Jewish Council for Education & Research used their comments out of context and made the Israeli officials sound as though they were endorsing or supporting the Democratic presidential candidate.

“It’s not only misleading, it was an interview about what the next president was going to have to deal with,” former deputy chief of General Staff Maj.-Gen. Uzi Dayan tells The Jerusalem Post.

Dayan and other Israelis were included on a recent JCRC video “Israeli General’s Speak.”

JCER is the group behind pro-Barack Obama sites [JewsVote.org[(http://jewsvote.org/) and The Great Schlep.
