Obama’s Logan Act Violation

September 16, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

While visiting Iraq, Obama attempted to convince Iraqi administration officials to delay a security agreement with the United States until after the US election.  The Obama denial in short, is not much of a denial but more an affirmation of Taheri’s position.

In the New York Post, conservative Iranian-born columnist Amir Taheri quoted Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari as saying the Democrat made the demand when he visited Baghdad in July, while publicly demanding an early withdrawal.

“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, according to Taheri.

“However, as an Iraqi, I prefer to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open,” Zebari reportedly said. …

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.

Let me break this down for you, Obama’s camp denies Taheri’s claim and attempts to set the record straight.  Do they not see that their perspective is EXACTLY what Taheri claims occured. 

Obama is interfearing with the current administrations diplomatic efforts which is a Logan Act Violation.  I am not holding my breath for pending criminal charges.

Nod:Hotair.
