Yesterday NY Post Columnist Amir Taheri reported that Senator Obama tried to get Iraq to delay negotiations on American withdrawals till President Bush was out of office. The report by AFP News has Obama’s campaign denying the charge and then ADMITTING that he tried to delay the negotiations:
Obama’s national security spokeswoman Wendy Morigi said Taheri’s article bore “as much resemblance to the truth as a McCain campaign commercial.” In fact, Obama had told the Iraqis that they should not rush through a “Strategic Framework Agreement” governing the future of US forces until after President George W. Bush leaves office, she said.
I’m no lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, but that smells a lot like treason to me. Senator Obama TRIED TO DELAY THE PRESIDENT’S NEGOTIATIONS WITH A FORIEGN NATION. At the very least all of those people who are voting for the Senator because he wants to cut and run in Iraq, should know that Obama wanted to DELAY troop withdrawals.
Yet there was NOTHING in the papers today, Nothing in the TV News last night. Everyone went gaga over the phony McCain affair story in the NY Times, The media is going crazy looking to dig up BS on Sarah Palin, and here is a legitimate columnist, finding out from a NAMED member of the Iraqi Govt, that the Senator tried to get in the way of negotiations and the MSM IGNORES it. There is no better example of Media bias than this.
