In another honest age and time, this would be known as Treason.
But not today, when the world is upside down and Marxists are on the verge of a complete takeover.
Barrack The Hussein Obama, the Annointed One of the Marxist Left actively worked behind the scenes in Iraq to undermine U.S. Policy there, even before elected to the office of President, in order to set the stage for exiting U.S. forces from Iraq during HIS Presidential Administration in 2009-2010.
Amir Teheri reports that while campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, The annointed messiah, Sen. Barack Obama tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.
According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.
However Obama campaign sources admitted that the report was true.
There were at least three other people in the room with Obama and Zebari to confirm the conversation, and there was concern that there were enough aggressive reporters based in Baghdad with the sources to confirm the conversation that to deny the comments would create a bigger problem.
Instead, Obama’s national security spokeswoman Wendy Morigi told reporters that Obama told the Iraqis that they should not rush through what she termed a “Strategic Framework Agreement” governing the future of U.S. forces until after President Bush left office. In other words, the Iraqis should not negotiate an American troop withdrawal.
According to a Senate staffer working for Sen. Joseph Biden, Biden himself got involved in the shaping of the statement. “The whole reason he’s on the ticket is the foreign policy insight,” explained the staffer.
Obama told NBC News at the time: “The foreign minister agreed that the next administration should not be bound by an agreement that’s currently made… and my concern is that if the Bush administration negotiates, as it currently has, and given that we’re entering into the heat of political season, that we’re probably better off not trying to complete a hard-and-fast agreement before the next administration takes office…“
So beyond all the lying spin and cleverly crafted obscurity that Obama is famous for throwing out to cloud his changing positions, this one is plain: Obama tried to DEMAND of Iraqi government officials that Iraq not agree to any troop withdrawals of American forces until HIS Administration takes office.
That way, Obama can take the credit for “getting us out of Iraq”.
How can a sitting Senator go to Iraq, talk with Iraqi officials to undermine or make policy to stall decisions the President and the military commanders made when he is not the Executive yet, if at all?
Is Obama wishing for our country’s foreign policy to fail in Iraq, or is he working actively to cause it to fail? the following element of U.S. Code Title 18 might be of interest:
- U.S. Code Title 18
§ 953. Private correspondence with foreign governments
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
At one time, there would have been a trial for this treason.
But not today.
Today, Democrat Elities routinely commit treason, including visiting our enemies and denouncing America from foreign soil. Pelosi did so from Syria, Obama does so from Iraq and Berlin.
