Who cheats an ally?

The Obama administration struck a deal with Israel for a three-month extension of Israel’s moratorium on settlement construction, in exchange for several considerations on our part. Whether this was a good idea on our part is moot; the deal fell through. The sticking point:

The United States ultimately decided not to comply with an Israeli request to put its offer in writing, including $3 billion worth of jet fighters, a commitment to object to anti-Israel resolutions in international organizations, and an agreement never again to ask for a suspension of settlement construction.

The deal was no secret, obviously, so there’s really only one reason why the administration would refuse to put it in writing.
