U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner Thursday challenged an assertion by the Obama administration that Israeli premier Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's upcoming speech to Congress about nuclear negotiations with Iran would be destructive to U.S.-Israeli relations.Boehner broke precedent by inviting the Israeli leader to address Congress without consulting the White House or Democratic lawmakers.Tuesday's speech will be the third by Netanyahu to a joint meeting of the Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. Some said it was inappropriate for Netanyahu to address the U.S. Congress just two weeks before Israeli elections.Boehner said it was important for the U.S. public to hear Netanyahu's views on the "grave threats" Israel faces.
