JERUSALEM — Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called Friday for closer engagement between the United States and Israel during a short visit here at a time of tension over Iran’s nuclear program.
The Huffington Post did cover General Dempsey's arrival, but stopped after that. The initial article only had speculation about what he was going to say, none of it positive. How typical.
The meetings were closed and their contents were not revealed. But General Dempsey, on his first visit to Israel as military chief, was quoted in brief remarks released by the office of Israel’s defense minister as saying, “We have many interests in common in the region in this very dynamic time, and the more we can continue to engage each other, the better off we’ll all be.”
