The White House has waved off suggestions that President Barak Obama was “embarrassed” to be photographed with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, amid questions over the minimal media coverage of their meeting in Washington this week.

“We were very comfortable with the coverage for last night’s meeting,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

But media-savvy critics have posted their own commentary on the matter, with video clips like this emerging on You Tube:

When asked in a press conference on Wednesday whether he saw “any contradiction at all when the Secretary of State goes before AIPAC and says that the U.S. has no stronger, no closer ally than Israel – and then the President won’t even allow a photograph of him and the Israeli Prime Minister”, Gibbs responded: “No, I don’t see a contradiction at all.”
