Obama to Share Missile Defense Secrets With Russia?
BigPeace.com ^ | 1/4/12 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 01/05/2012 11:19:30 AM PST by ColdOne

Bill Gertz of the Washington Times reports that President Barack Obama has indicated he is prepared to convey information about secret American missile defense technology to Russia:

In the president’s signing statement issued Saturday in passing into law the fiscal 2012 defense authorization bill, Mr. Obama said restrictions aimed at protecting top-secret technical data on U.S. Standard Missile-3 velocity burnout parameters might impinge on his constitutional foreign policy authority.

As first disclosed in this space several weeks ago, U.S. officials are planning to provide Moscow with the SM-3 data, despite reservations from security officials who say that doing so could compromise the effectiveness of the system by allowing Russian weapons technicians to counter the missile. The weapons are considered some of the most effective high-speed interceptors in the U.S. missile defense arsenal.

There are also concerns that Russia could share the secret data with China and rogue states such as Iran and North Korea to help their missile programs defeat U.S. missile defenses.

Even before this latest revelation, the entire enterprise of President Obama’s disarmament policy–from “reset” with Russia to selling out our European allies–had been a c

Thus eliminating the need to ‘crash’ a missile onto the territory of a hostile nation who would then ‘hand’ the missile to the Russians for reverse-engineering. Mr. Obama simply eliminating the ‘middleman’ in the transaction.

Funny if it weren’t all so serious!

What’s that clause in the US Constitution that Obama violates on a daily basis? Oh yeah, now I remember, the Natural Born Citizen clause. The guy has all kinds of foreign allegiance...

But no one cares about that part or the rest of the US Constitution anyways.

It's all a matter of interpretation. Obama's constitutional foreigh policy authority is not what you and I would think is constitutional foreign policy. He thinks the constitution gives him the authority to do whatever he thinks is right - which is to use foreigh policy to aid in the destruction of the traditional American way of life and liberty.

Isn’t compromising Top Secret information still a crime? If not, then they need to release that military kid they are charging for releasing info to wekileeks (or however you spell it).

Why even have security clearances anymore if someone can just release what they want to. After all Mr. obama is, allegely, a citizen and no better than any other citizen.

TREASON

The betrayal of one's own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.

Building on the tradition begun by Edward III, the Founding Fathers carefully delineated the crime of treason in Article III of the U.S. Constitution, narrowly defining its elements and setting forth stringent evidentiary requirements.

Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

The Treason Clause applies only to disloyal acts committed during times of war. Acts of dis-loyalty during peacetime are not considered treasonous under the Constitution. Nor do acts of Espionage committed on behalf of an ally constitute treason. For example, julius and ethel rosenberg were convicted of espionage, in 1951, for helping the Soviet Union steal atomic secrets from the United States during World War II. The Rosenbergs were not tried for treason because the United States and the Soviet Union were allies during World War II.

Under Article III a person can levy war against the United States without the use of arms, weapons, or military equipment. Persons who play only a peripheral role in a conspiracy to levy war are still considered traitors under the Constitution if an armed rebellion against the United States results. After the U.S. Civil War, for example, all Confederate soldiers were vulnerable to charges of treason, regardless of their role in the secession or insurrection of the Southern states. No treason charges were filed against these soldiers, however, because President Andrew Johnson issued a universal Amnesty.

The crime of treason requires a traitorous intent. If a person unwittingly or unintentionally gives aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States during wartime, treason has not occurred. Similarly, a person who pursues a course of action that is intended to benefit the United States but mistakenly helps an enemy is not guilty of treason. Inadvertent disloyalty is never punishable as treason, no matter how much damage the United States suffers.


So, this begs the question....although I know we are not at war with Russia specifically, we are still at war (with other countries), so does it count? We certainly aren't in "peace-time"... As well, is Russia considered an ally to the US?

In any case, considering all the Traitor In Chief HAS done...it all has been toward ONE goal....and that is to destroy the Republic and take down America and the Western Way of Life, which essentially IS Treason (if not Traitorous).

I think that Reagan proposed to share the fruits of SDI research with the Russians. There were all kinds of problems with that. Congress might not have allowed it. They won't allow foreign sales of the F-22, for example. This looks like Barry is just going to unilaterally go ahead and give away one of our technological crown jewels. Maybe he's attempting to provoke a heated response from House Republicans. Hope he gets it!

“Obama to Share Missile Defense Secrets With Russia?

Yes, but Reagan's proposal was simply a negotiating ploy to overcome the objections of our European “allies” to contributing to SDI research and development. AFAIK, no missile-defense secrets were ever shared with the Soviet Union during the Reagan Administration.
