Obama’s Secret Negotiations in Iraq Violate Logan Act?

In an explosive revelation while Sen. Barack Obama was making all of those public pronouncements about immediate withdraw from Iraq, he was secretly going behind the back of Americans attempting to delay President Bush’s negotiation talks regarding withdraw from Iraq. (see story)

That’s right Barack Obama, the two-faced political animal that he is placed his political career above the interest of the American people and attempted to sabotage the Bush negotiations for troop withdraw from Iraq possibly violating the Logan Act (private citizens can not interfere in foreign affairs.)

Yet in Obama’s July European tour where he also toured Iraq he held private meetings in which Obama tried 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 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.

Whether or not this is prosecuted it should noted that Obama does put partisan politics above all else.

And of course, Obama still in his usual undermine the Bush administration at all cost mode told Zebari that it was in the interest of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its “State of weakness and political confusion.”

Zebari said to Obama to Zebari’s credit that he preferred to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open.

Apparently the Iraqi leadership does not trust Sen. Obama, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani (whose party is a member of the Socialist International) sees Obama as "a man of the Left" - who, once elected, might change his opposition to Iraq's liberation.

Indeed, say Talabani's advisers, a President Obama might be tempted to appropriate the victory that America has already won in Iraq by claiming that his (Obama’s)intervention transformed (Bush) failure into (Obama) success.
[Prime Minister Nouri al-] Maliki's advisers have persuaded him that Obama will win - but the prime minister worries about the senator's "political debt to the anti-war lobby" - which is determined to transform Iraq into a disaster to prove that toppling Saddam Hussein was "the biggest strategic blunder in US history."—Amir Taheri
Obama has given Iraqis the impression that he doesn't want Iraq to appear anything like a success, let alone a victory, for America. The reason why?

Obama fears that the perception of US victory in Iraqi might revive the Bush Doctrine of "pre-emptive" war - that is, removing a threat before it strikes at America.

Despite some usual equivocations on the subject, Obama rejects pre-emption as a legitimate form of self -defense. To be credible, his foreign-policy philosophy requires Iraq to be seen as a failure, a disaster, a quagmire, a pig with lipstick or any of the other apocalyptic adjectives used by the American defeat industry in the past five years.

There can be no denying now that Democrat’s opposition to the war is primarily political and Sen. Obama and his Democrat Party would have lost the war to win the 2008 Presidential election.

The fact that President Bush has produced a victory in Iraq in spite of and against the opposition of the entire Democrat Party including Sen. Barack Obama proves that the Democrats were wrong in their attempts to subvert and undermine U.S. war efforts.

These charges alone should disqualify any Democrat candidate from becoming President especially Barack Hussein Obama!


  1. ......... and he has the gall to accuse McCain of running a dirty campaign!

    HE put his ambitions above honor, country and the very military that he professes to care about.

  2. What? Surprised? Oh I know that you're not, but the Libs will not think that this is a bad thing.

    McCain needs to pick this up and ran with it.

  3. I hate to say it, but I am more convinced, each day, that he is a closet muslim, waiting for the opportunity to get a foothold in the US.

    Call me prejudiced, call me hateful, but that's my feeling.
