However, even before winning the November 4 election, Obama unofficially used what experts call "track two" discussions to approach America's two foes in the region.

This came up on a rather dubious source a few days ago and was posted here. We all foamed at the mouth, but most of us thought it couldn't be true, because having a free-lance civilian or civilian group going out and "negotiating" with an enemy foreign power would be, essentially, treason.

But I guess that doesn't apply to Obama, our first foreign president. Maybe he's not held to American rules.

And what is this: Meanwhile, a group of experts under the auspices of the think tank, the United States Institute of Peace (USIP)

I guess this is Barry's "Department of Peace."

We're in a seriously bad situation here. He's been president for less than two weeks and the WH has turned into Treason Central.

Well, I’d guess it was originally to arrange money laundering for the campaign contributions from abroad.

I have a hard time calling NObama “discreet” about anything when his snarky comment to the Republicans working on a “bipartisan stimulus plan” was

I WON.....

That’s a good point. I’m sure he probably did receive money from them. But he shares their goals anyway, so the money was probably just a little sweetener.

I can’t wait to see what comes of this. On second thought, I probably can.

What was the date of The Coronation again? What a pompous arrogant creep. God please get us through whatever time this megalomaniac is shoved in our face.

Wouldn't this be illegal, a violation of the Logan Act?

Hush my mouth, nevermind.

I thought Achmadinutjob had some pre-conditions. Has Obama apologized, withdrawn our troops from Afghanistan, and ended support for Israel?

I guess they thought Superbowl Sunday would be a good time to let this one slip out. I hope somebody reposts it tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to seeing Europe turn wholeheartedly on Obama once Iran nukes London, Paris, or Brussels.

Cheers!

Isn’t that special—particularly after hamas was so polite in thanking iran for all their help against Israel.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again...I believe Obama is trying to purposely ruin the US as he and his Ayers minions hate America.

Not to mention a way of purchasing a president. Though he shares their goals, he wasn’t shy about demanding money for almost anything but especially his support.

“If its on Yahoo News its probably not discreet.

What’s especially insidious about the headline is that it doesn’t make it clear that this took place BEFORE he was elected. “recently” could imply after the inaugaration.. but, that’s not the case.
