Obama spokesman Bill Burton flatly denied the contention that Obama's prayer, in the form of a note slipped into the Wailing Wall, was "approved for publication."This in apparent response to the claim of the publishing newspaper, Ma'ariv, that "Barack Obama's note was approved for publication in the international media" before Obama even arrived at the Wall.
"That didn't happen," he said in an email. "We have neither confirmed nor denied the prayer to anyone."
Well, I already said that Ma'ariv was conducting a CYA exercise.
