Last month I noted that the official US visa website took pains not to mention the name "Israel", mentioning that they have offices in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem but without saying the name of the country those cities were in nor showing its flag.
The information reached the State Department where they said that the site was outsourced to a private company and did not reflect official policy. But of course no outsourcer should put something on a website that the US would not agree with.
The site has now been modified to include the word "Israel" and the Israeli flag instead of "Tel Aviv,"
But Jerusalem is still not a part of Israel on this page but the State Department has never accepted that it is.
All three entries point to the same web pages.
