Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright became the latest Democratic voice today to take issue with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu‘s upcoming address to Congress. Netanyahu was invited by Speaker John Boehnerwithout consultation of the White House, and several Democrats have indicated they’re boycotting the speech as a result.

Netanyahu has repeatedly insisted his speech is more important that some political fighting over protocol, and assured that he’s not speaking because he wants a “confrontation” with President Obama.

But as far as Albright’s concerned, “he is interfering in our internal affairs.” She explained to Andrea Mitchell, “I don’t want to interfere in Israeli internal affairs. But it strikes me that there’s an awful lot going on in his neighborhood, in the Middle East, and that’s where he should be.”
