Barak is back to his snake in the grass tricks
Ehud Barak secretly met with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who previously served as the White House chief of staff, trying to bolster his political pull at the expense of Netanyahu, as well as engaging in other questionable activities while on his trips to the U.S. He’s in a relatively desperate position with the elections coming up — his tiny little factional party will definitely not get enough votes (if it gets any at all) for him to have a place in government in the next election. As a result, he’s desperately trying to get on the ticket for other parties. Clearly Labour is not going to take him back and the word is that he was trying to get a top spot on Likud’s ticket and they turned him down. Down and out is where he needs to be. He should take Mofaz (sneaky snake no. 2) right on out the door with him.
