Default Obama tried to sway Iraqis on Bush deal

Quote:
At the same time the Bush administration was negotiating a still elusive agreement to keep the U.S. military in Iraq, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama tried to convince Iraqi leaders in private conversations that the president shouldn't be allowed to enact the deal without congressional approval.
Mr. Obama's conversations with the Iraqi leaders, confirmed to The Washington Times by his campaign aides, began just two weeks after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination in June and stirred controversy over the appropriateness of a White House candidate's contacts with foreign governments while the sitting president is conducting a war. . .
Read the rest of the article please...

Then ask these three questions...

Who has the most to lose by telling the truth,

Who has the most to gain by telling a lie here...

Why wouldn't Obama just let a campaign aide talk, like others have.



Sorry, something in this smells... REAL BAD.

You're right preach, something is going on that doesn't sound right.

While he may be a hopeful presidential candidate, he shojuldn't be involving himself in those types of discussions until he is officially the president. Otherwise, let the current or the next president (in case obama isn't the next president) take care of the country's business!!!

What a back stabber. Should change his name to ray ray.

Default Re: Obama tried to sway Iraqis on Bush deal

I was thoroughly ticked off when I read this article.

I was on the phone last night to my best friend actually defending Obama in our conversation (who would you rather have in office, Obama or Clinton).

Then I read this article.... and now I have to change my mind.

No way, no how. I was comparing Obama to Carter before... but that doesn't work.

MARK MY WORDS... He WILL be the next Nixon. Destroying the economy and flirting with treason.

Just thought I would take the bait on this story. Here’s what a quick search found:

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpu...ining-mcc.html

Scroll down a bit for the information.

http://journalstar.com/articles/2008...1870929898.txt

There isn't much on the net regarding this non-story. (my opinion) When prominent Republicans debunk a story like this because they were actually there, I can understand why there's not much to find.

Gotta believe what we want to.

I'm going to guess here that Obama was trying to be subtle and suggest that the Iraqis not commit to anything that would be subject to change should a new administration (namely his) take over in 09. Of coarse, keeping it on the hush and on the down low until he would be able to take credit for it, wouldn't hurt either.

Chuck Hagel is becoming to the republicans what Zell Miller is to the Democrats... So I wouldn't put much faith in that line of argument...

Furthermore, the charge from NOT REPUBLICANS... but an IRAQI OFFICIAL... is that it DID NOT happen at the meeting, but during a PHONE CALL a week or two LATER.

So Hagel has no idea whether it happened or not, because he wasn't there at that phone call...

It will take more than a quick sweep of a brush to make this pass by. At least for me.
