A new anti-Obama web ad by conservative activist William Kristol's Emergency Committee for Israel argues that the president's apology on healthcare insurance suggests he cannot be trusted on other issues, including diplomatic talks with Iran.
The video starts with Obama promising that Americans can keep their current coverage if they like it, "period," and then shows the president's NBC interview, where he apologizes
for misleading the public.
Story continues below video.
The ad, titled "Obama's March to War," continues with Obama's "red line" pledge that he will hold Syrian President Bashar-al Assad accountable if he uses chemical weapons, and then shows him saying, "I didn't set a red line."
It next has the president stating, "We have Israel's back," and shows him promising during a debate last year with nominee Mitt Romney that "as long as I'm president of the United States, Iran will not get a nuclear weapon."
The ad ends with footage of a nuclear explosion, and Obama saying, "I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," referring to the cancelled health insurance plans.

A summary of the ad reading, "The stakes are too high for empty promises," is posted onscreen in the final few seconds of the one minute video.
This is not the first ad that Kristol's group has run accusing the White House of being weak on Iran. Shortly before last year's presidential election, it paid for a robocall
of a fake debate between the president and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The robocall, which spliced together remarks made by the two leaders at different times, seemingly was aimed at Jewish voters in swing states.
