U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry testifies to House Foreign Relations Committee on Capitol HillBy Arshad Mohammed and Allyn Fisher-Ilan WASHINGTON/JERUSALEM (Reuters) – U.S. officials on Wednesday questioned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s judgment and said his outspoken condemnation of efforts to secure an Iranian nuclear deal had injected destructive partisanship into U.S.-Israeli relations. In an escalation of hostile exchanges between the allies six days before Netanyahu gives a speech to Congress on the threat from Iran, the Israeli leader accused world powers of abandoning a pledge to prevent Tehran from getting a nuclear bomb. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, engaged in international talks with Tehran on its nuclear program, said Netanyahu may be wrong. Kerry told a congressional hearing: “He may have a judgment that just may not be correct here.” Kerry advised waiting to hear what Netanyahu had to say in Tuesday’s speech.
