Obama Tries to Stall GI's Iraq Withdrawal
"The problem with what Obama did is twofold. First, Senator Obama has no authority to negotiate on behalf of the executive branch, which has sole authority to conduct foreign policy. Second and most important, Obama attempted to interfere against the interests of the United States. He can ask all the questions he wants, but when Obama started pressing Iraqi officials to stop negotiations with the executive branch — in other words, break one level of diplomatic contact and freeze a military alliance in time of war — that crossed a line and clearly violated the Logan Act. It also makes clear that Obama would do anything to get elected, even harm diplomatic relations between the US and an ally." - from Ed Morrissey for Hot Air
"Life clocks are a lie! Carousel is a lie! There is no renewal!"
O.K., so Obama didn't come out with a statement decrying this report as a lie. The actual statement from the Obama camp is not so comical:
Obama’s national security spokeswoman Wendy Morigi said, "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."
Is it my interpretation, or did Ms. Morigi just admit that Obama attempted to circumvent U.S. policy?
