Default First F-35s to Arrive in Israel

The first two F-35 fighters slated for delivery to Israel have already left the United States and have reached the Azores.

There is expected to be a formal ceremony when the airplanes arrive in Israel next Monday. U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter is expected to be on hand for the event:

Perhaps I'm just a cynic, but I read Ashton Carter's presence as meaning that Obama will be trying to leverage this to give himself cover for any last-minute diplomatic moves he might be dreaming of.
