Barack Obama’s Violation of Logan Act Has Been Confirmed

As I previously posted here, Obama’s camp has essentially confirmed the Amir Taheri – NY Post report alleging Barack Obama the (presumptuous) Democratic Presidential candidate of trying to stall troop withdrawal until he becomes (God forbid) president.

A quick re-cap…
Obama’s national security spokeswoman Wendy Morigi responds to the Amir Taheri – NY Post report.

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’s compare:

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.

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.

Where is the distinction? I do not see any difference between what Taheri reported and in how the Obama camp responded.
A non-denial denial. A trademark of the Obama camp.

Amir Taheri vs. Obama round two:
Excerpts

OBAMA OBJECTS
BUT THE EVIDENCE SAYS I’M RIGHT

[…]

Here is how NBC reported Obama’s position on June 16, after his conversation in the US with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari: “Obama also told Zebari, he said, that Congress should be involved in any negotiations regarding a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq. He suggested it may be better to wait until the next administration to negotiate such an agreement.”

In other words, Obama wanted a delay on the Status of Forces Agreement, not on the Strategic Framework Agreement – as his rebuttal now claims.

[…]

This confirms precisely what I suggested in my article: Obama preferred to have no agreement on US troop withdrawals until a new administration took office in Washington.

Obama has changed position on another key issue. In the NBC report, he pretends that US troops in Iraq do not have a “clear mandate.” Now, however, he admits that there is a clear mandate from the UN Security Council and that he’d have no objection to extending it pending a bilateral Iraq-US agreement.

The campaign’s rebuttal adds other confusions to the mix. It notes that Obama (along with two other senators who accompanied him) also stated in July: “We raised a number of other issues with the Iraqi leadership, including our deep concern about Iranian financial and material assistance to militia engaged in violent acts against American and Iraqi forces; the need to secure public support through our respective legislatures for any long term security agreements our countries negotiate; the importance of doing more to help the more than 4 million Iraqis who are refugees or internally displaced persons; and the need to give our troops immunity from Iraqi prosecution so long as they are in Iraq.”

Note that in this part of the statement, the term “security agreements” is used instead of SOFA and SFA – another sign that the two can’ t be separated.

[…]

My account of Obama’s message to the Iraqis was based on a series of conversations with Iraqi officials, as well as reports and analyses in the Iraqi media (including the official newspaper, Al Sabah) on the senator’s trip to Baghdad. It is also confirmed by Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari.

In a long interview with the pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat, Zebari says: “Obama asked me why, in view of the closeness of a change of administration, we were hurrying the signing of this special agreement, and why we did not wait until the coming of the new administation next year and agree on some issues and matters.”

Again, note that Zebari mentions a single set of agreements, encompassing both SFA and SOFA.

[…]

As has come to be expected, since the publication of Taheri ’s initial report, Obama’s league of supporters/brown shirts have threatened him with “death and worse”.

Moving along…

Move America Forward has already created a video addressing this issue.

Disgrace! Obama discourages troop negotiations for personal political gain @YouTube

The Prowler provides further proof.

STANDING BY THE STORY
The Obama campaign spent more than five hours on Monday attempting to figure out the best refutation of the explosive New York Post report that quoted Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari as saying that Barack Obama during his July visit to Baghdad demanded that Iraq not negotiate with the Bush Administration on the withdrawal of American troops. Instead, he asked that they delay such negotiations until after the presidential handover at the end of January.

The three problems, according to campaign sources: 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.

[…]

Barack Obama grossly violates the US Constitution and the separation of powers between the branches of government using US Troops as political pawns. The Senate should open an investigation ASAP.

He is a disgrace to this Country and has no right being a US Senator let alone POTUS.

And to think he taught constitutional law.

The mind reels…

Pittsburgh Anarchists Plan Violent Take Over of Military Recruiting Station on March 19th!

Spread the news!

Cross posted from Red Alerts

Pamela Hall of the United American Committee tipped me off to this one. Pittsburgh anarchists are planning a violent action at a recruiting station on March 19th as their contribution to that day’s chaos being proposed by a collection of violent anti-American groups. On their website they announce plans to “occupy” the station and assault and kidnap the soldiers there.

From www.organizepittsburgh.org:

March 19 War Anniversary Protest
Evict the military recruitment station, cage the recruiters!

When: Wednesday, March 19
Rally: 6:00pm
March: Departs at 6:30pm for the Military Recruiting Station
Where: Meet at the dinosaur sculpture in front of Carnegie Library (4400 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)

This March 19 hundreds of cities across the U.S. will hold events to mark the anniversary of the war in Iraq and remember the tragic toll the world has and continues to pay; nearly 4,000 U.S. soldiers killed, 30,000 wounded, at least 100,000 Iraqis killed, four million displaced, and nearly a trillion dollars squandered.

While there will be events in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere, members of Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG) feel it is important that there be a local event connected to our community’s long-standing, successful efforts to use education and action to oppose the war and undermine the militarism that leads to perpetual war(s).

On Wednesday, March 19, POG will be holding a torch-lit march to a modern day castle of abominations—our local military recruiting station. If the station remains open, we intend to evict it and everything inside of it, occupy the location, and transform it into something useful for the community. We’ll also be bringing a movable cage in which to confine military recruiters until they no longer pose a danger to our friends and neighbors. Of course, the station may be closed and recruiters may flee or hide behind the police apparatus that enables the war to continue. That is often the case, and we’ve seen in the past the overwhelming resources the state directs against these anniversary events because of their importance as a symbol of dissent. We believe in acting effectively, in confronting the war, at times and places of our choosing. When the state brings the resources necessary to suppress direct action against the war, it makes sense to hold a symbolic protest, and we still consider that a success, as it exposes the reality that it is ultimately on the local level that our countries war policy will be decided.

The truth is, the anniversary of the war—much like symbolic casualty milestones—is not significant in and of itself. Just as each death is equally lamentable, so too is each day that we continue to engage in a brutal occupation, that we marginalize and repress progressive non-sectarian organizations, that we crack down on independent Iraqi trade unions, that we arm multiple “sides” of a conflict, that we work to maintain the economic advantage of U.S. corporations, that innocent Iraqis die, that the powerful operate with impunity. In short, each day we sacrifice more lives and resources in an endless, self-serving war, a cycle of violence and retribution.

But the anniversary has meaning for those who have suffered, for those who remember. And while the President will use the day to claim a new victory with new benchmarks on the horizon, we have an opportunity to present the people’s story, a counter-narrative. When the body count of American deaths decreases, regardless of how many Iraqis die in our place, the media attention lessens and the politicians move on. But our responsibility to work for peace and justice remains.

It is our sincere hope that you will join us on March 19 if only to stand with others of similar good faith to show that there is dissent at home, and there is a common humanity that binds the people of the United States and Iraq—the desire to create and sustain a new world based on mutual understanding and solidarity.

For peace with justice,
In solidarity,

Pittsburgh Organizing Group

These “peace” protesters are planning to kidnap soldiers. The left has become more and more violent as it fills up with the spoiled, rich, White spawn of a generation of people who refused to teach them personal responsibility. These people are announcing their intention to commit a felony on the Internet as if they’re planning a tea party. They see no difference between the violence they plan and a peaceful protest.

The Pittsburgh Organizing Group has been sending American radicals to Oaxaca to participate in the chaos there, and hold “tactical trainings” to teach their members, among other things, how to “defend” themselves from the police. They are in essence a far left version of the Militias the media warned us about so often in the 90s.

The difference is that the Militia threat was largely mythical while this group has participated in an ever escalating campaign of violent “direct actions” all over Pittsburgh. They are actually dangerous, and are openly planning violence against unsuspecting soldiers at home. Where are the breathless media reports on the dangers of Pittsburgh Anarchists?

Hopefully the U.A.C., Gathering of Eagles and other patriot groups can arrange a counter protest there to show those soldiers that not all Americans think these miscreants should be allowed to attempt their assault. And hopefully no one will be hurt by these people, although their track record on that account doesn’t inspire confidence.

Little jihadi wannabes. SPIT!

Update:

In related news.
Just be there! @ Old War Dogs

Have you had it with the left wing organizations demeaning and slandering our troops at every opportunity? Has the escalation in attacks against our recruiters across the nation, which progressed to the bombing of the Recruiter Station in Times Square last week, alerted you to the fact that we are fighting a REAL INSURGENCY in this country?

And this!
