The concocted Obama-Netanyahu "67 borders" conflict

"based on the 1967 lines, with agreed swaps" is the stated US position in a statement issued by Clinton and Netanyahu last November. So what is this nonsense about Obama saying those exact words being some kind of new development? Netanyahu wasn't complaining about it here. The key part is 'agreed swaps' which in the context of Israel -vs- the Palestinians means whatever Israel says goes. This whole facade is just a propaganda ploy to make it appear that Obama is some kind of neutral on the Israel-Palestinian conflict and is pressuring Israel so when he demands more concessions from the Palestinians people think well he's been tough on Israel so now Palestinians must make concessions too.
