The New York Post’s Amir Taheri reported September 15th that Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said Sen. Barack Obama had asked Iraqi officials “… why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington.”
Fearful that the success in Iraq would harm his political aspirations, Obama sought to keep U.S. troops in Iraq so he could continue attacking the Bush Administration for not imposing a timetable for withdrawal.
Zebari also confided another important theme: a lack of confidence by the Iraqi officials in Obama’s abilities and the political friends he’s made on his quest for political power…specifically those in the anti-war lobby.
Obama’s campaign is now trying to cover-up his abhorrent anti-military position he took with the Iraqi foreign minister, but never thought would be revealed to the American people. He has shamelessly tried to claim that people are mixing up two different documents being negotiated — the Status of Forces Agreement and the Strategic Framework Agreement, which sets the terms for U.S. military involvement in Iraq.
But the New York Post columnist ripped apart this phony explanation. He cited an NBC report that proved Obama is either forgetful or plain lying. Taheri uses specific examples of why Obama’s defense is flawed.
“Here is how NBC reported Obama’s position on June 16, after his conversation in the U.S. 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,” Taheri’s Wednesday article said.
The bottom line is that Obama shamefully and recklessly tried to delay progress in Iraq for political gain. That is despicable and unbecoming a presidential candidate. That is why he must be stopped.
