Feinstein Doubts Netanyahu is an Ally of America

Feels embarrassed and humiliated by his actions

For the second week in a row, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has used the Sunday news shows to slam Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Last week, Feinstein said that Netanyahu was "arrogant" to think he speaks for all Jews. Sunday, Feinstein appeared on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos and expressed doubt that the PM is truly an ally of the United States and said she now feels embarrassed and humiliated by his actions.

Stumping for a nuclear agreement with Iran, Feinstein said it promised to be a real "sea change" for that nation and would essentially "protect from a breakout" in production. That is, if Netanyahu doesn't stand in the way. 

Feinstein said about the prime minister's speech before Congress:

What Prime Minister Netanyahu did here was something that no ally of the United States would have done. I find it humiliating, embarrassing and very arrogant because this agreement is not yet finished. To trash it before you have the final period on it, before you know what it is, I think is a huge error in judgment for our number one ally in that area.
