McCain Responds to Obama's Reported Undermining of the Commander-In-Chief During Wartime

[Andy McCarthy]

Report from Amer Taheri (see today's web briefing) that Sen. Obama secretly negotiated with the Iraqi government regarding U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. McCain spokesman Randy Scheunemann stated as follows:

At this point, it is not yet clear what official American negotiations Senator Obama tried to undermine with Iraqi leaders, but the possibility of such actions is unprecedented. It should be concerning to all that he reportedly urged that the democratically-elected Iraqi government listen to him rather than the US administration in power. If news reports are accurate, this is an egregious act of political interference by a presidential candidate seeking political advantage overseas. Senator Obama needs to reveal what he said to Iraq's Foreign Minister during their closed door meeting. The charge that he sought to delay the withdrawal of Americans from Iraq raises serious questions about Senator Obama's judgment and it demands
an explanation.

Has there been one?

WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private 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.

In the words of one person's comments:

"Why is CBS, NBC and ABC not covering this information? This is HUGE and Americans deserve to know that Obama was willing to sell out the lives of our soldiers, sons, daughters, mothers and father for the sole purpose of winning the election.This is the worst thing Obama has done to date.Clearly Obama is NOT PATRIOTIC, his actions are selfish, disgusting and anything but American.If the media is not going to cover this then we need to take this into our own hands and start emailing this article to everyone we know so that the word gets out about what a TRAITOR Obama has become.OBAMA'S ACTIONS ARE DISGUSTING!!!!!"
