“We Have Made Missteps”: Biden Official Admits Errors in Gaza, Blasts Netanyahu Gov’t in Private Mtg.

HeadlineFeb 12, 2024

One of President Biden’s top foreign policy aides has admitted the administration has made “missteps” in the Middle East. During a closed-door meeting with Arab American leaders in Michigan, deputy national security adviser Jonathan Finer was recorded saying, “We are very well aware that we have missteps in the course of responding to this crisis since October 7.” During the conversation, Finer also said, “I do not have any confidence in this current government of Israel.” Finer traveled to Michigan after Arab Americans leaders vowed to vote “uncommitted” in this month’s Michigan primary due to Biden’s support for Israel’s assault on Gaza.
