This is something. Did Netanyahu give advance notice to Obama of the flotilla raid and was he given assurance that the U.S. would not criticize? Haaretz on Netanyahu’s public testimony to a committee investigating the flotilla raid in Israel:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu evaded the questions put forth by members of the panel probing Israel’s raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla on at least six different occasions on Monday, saying he would only address those issues behind closed doors….

The PM again evaded the issue when asked about his trip to North America, which
took place a few days prior to the flotilla’s arrival. "I had a very important
meeting with the U.S. president and I would like to elaborate on that later on
[during the testimony to be held behind closed doors]."
