Wikileaks shows that Rutenberg emailed Philippe Reines, longtime Clinton aide, asking him to confirm that Hillary supports a two-state solution.
I'm pressing the R (likely) candidates on their positions on the two-state solution and figure I should make sure I take note of Secretary Clinton's, which I assume is not expected to change from "essential" ?
Reines passed the email up the chain at the tightly scripted Clinton campaign, where Jennifer Palmieri, its Director of Communications, amplified the question:
thanks - adding Jake and John to this.
Think this is our first incoming on how to handle Bibi being against a 2 state solution.
Are we clear on how we want to handle this? Should we do a call? thanks
The answer same from Jake Sullivan, senior adviser to Clinton:
Don't think we need a call. She is for a two-state solution and thinks the status quo is unsustainable. She had dozens of hours of convos with Bibi where he not only supported a two-state solution but actively negotiated to bring it about. We don't need to wade into Israeli politics but we should be clear and unabashed about our own position.
Remember that the Obama administration dismissed Bibi's clarification that he supported a two-state solution.
This shows once again that they were speaking out of hatred for Bibi, not facts.
