The apology

Israel apologize to Turkey after the killing of its 9 citizens on the Gaza flotilla in 2010. Better late than never but man, it could have been done much earlier.
Obama traveled to Israel without any new proposals. Many scoffed at his trip, wondering whether it even made sense for him to go. But, in the end, he didn’t leave empty handed. President Obama and his team must have been pretty pleased with themselves when they traveled to Jordan Friday after scoring what CNN characterizes as a “diplomatic coup.” And it was a last minute coup. During a meeting with Obama at the airport, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu placed a phone call to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and apologized for the killing of eight Turkish citizens and one American of dual nationality who were part of an aid flotilla to Gaza.
