Barack Hussein Obama apparently is of the belief, that simply running for the office gives him the right to interfere with ongoing US policy in Iraq. FOX NEWS is reporting that according a new article in today’s the New York Post that:
WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has 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 (emphasis mine) for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.
“He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington,” Zebari said in an interview.
I urge everyone to read the entire article and then ask yourselves is this man really ready for “prime time?”
Here’s another question to ask. How is it that Obama isn’t in violation of the Logan Act? If you don’t know, the Logan Act forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.
Under whose authority was Obama acting when he approached the Iraqi leaders with this proposal? But this isn’t really new, is it?
Remember his remarks about the Canadians and free trade and NAFTA? I guess Obama’s idea of foreign relations is to tell the American people one thing, and then go behind their backs and attempt to negotiate something else.
This man is not fit to lead this country!
