"The New York Times": An American official admits that there were errors in the Biden administration's response to the Gaza war

John Feiner, the US President's first deputy national security adviser, admitted that there were errors in the administration's response to the war in Gaza, during a closed meeting with Arab-American activists in Michigan.

The New York Times quoted Viner as saying: “We made mistakes in responding to the crisis since October 7, and I have no confidence in the current Israeli government and its willingness to take serious steps regarding the two-state solution.” The First Deputy National Security Advisor to the US President pledged that the US administration would do better.

During the meeting held on Thursday with Arab American activists in Dearborn, Michigan, Viner said: “We are well aware that we have made mistakes in the course of responding to this crisis.” According to a recording of the rally obtained by The New York Times. An official at the National Security Council confirmed the authenticity of the recording.

“We left a very damaging impression based on what was a woefully inadequate public accounting of how much the president, the administration, and the state value the lives of Palestinians,” Feiner added.

These statements came after months of public and private warnings from the Biden administration to Israel to take a better approach in the conflict that has claimed the lives of more than 27,000 Palestinians, according to health authorities in Gaza yesterday, Thursday, and Biden himself announced that Israel “went over the line in its response to the Hamas attack.” in October". According to what was reported by the New York Times.

The war in Gaza has become part of a series of political problems facing Biden, who has remained publicly supportive of Israel and resisted demands within the Democratic Party to call for a ceasefire.

Biden himself has acknowledged the pro-Palestinian protesters who have become a frequent presence at his public events.
