David Gergen says it seems the Israelis don't trust that the U.S. will use force, and there's a major discrepancy in defining the red line with Iran. Israel wants to act when the Iranians have the capability to build a bomb, while America views that point as the time at which they acquire a bomb. Gergen says "that's way too late" from the Israeli perspective.
He also added that Pres. Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu talk often, but didn't meet in person during the U.N. General Assembly because they lack personal harmony.
