Mideast officials: Obama in secret talks with Iran Asking Tehran to guarantee it won't hit U.S. if

JERUSALEM – President Obama has been engaged in secret, back-channel talks with Iran in which he informed Tehran’s leaders he is completely opposed to any Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, according to informed Middle Eastern officials.

The officials told WND the behind-the-scenes talks aim to secure a guarantee from Iran that it will not retaliate against the U.S. in the event of any Israeli military strike, the officials said.

It was unclear what, if anything, Obama offered Iran in exchange for a pledge against targeting U.S. installations, including in the Gulf.

The State Department did not immediately return a WND request seeking comment on the alleged back-door talks.

In a wide-ranging interview March 9 with Al-Monitor, an Arab website founded in the wake of the Middle East revolutions, former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel hinted that private approaches to Iran were already occurring.

Hagel is co-chairman of Obama’s Intelligence Advisory Board. While he was in the Senate he served on the Foreign Relations Committee.

Al-Monitor’s Washington correspondent, Barbara Slavin, interviewed Hagel at Georgetown University, where he teaches a weekly class.

Slavin asked Hagel: “Do you know if there any private approaches going on, or is it all through the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany?

Israel is showing Obama what a novice he is at “leaking” info.

May we all live in boring times.

He gave them what he could for right now, but he'll have more flexibility after the election.

For anyone who has ever wondered... what if the president acted so brazenly as to spend the country into oblivion, enrich his political buds beyond their wildest dreams through laughingly transparent business schemes and money laundering, violate his oath of office on a daily basis, party like a playboy nearly endlessly, ignore congress, ignore lawfully issued subpeonas, and get caught playing for the other side, jeoparizing the security of the country... would that president be immediately placed under arrest and tried for his crimes? Well, you got your answer.

This democrat socialist fool is going to get a lot of people, and I mean A LOT of people killed. And I think he wants that, so the chaos greases the skids of his declaring a national emergency and suspending elections. ... I wish I could recall which fool at FR told me that the Republic would survive the little barry bastard winnning the election in 2008. That fool was wrong then and sadly, events are proving he was foolish.

...aim to secure a guarantee from Iran...

This is a joke right? A guarantee from Iran, or North Korea is about as good as ... sell, words fail me. How about sham, worthless.

If hussein believes it for a moment he is a fool. If he doesn't believe it but proceeds, then he is a traitor and should be imprisoned.

I’m kinda surprised that The Mossad hasn’t unearthed Zero’s real birth certificate — or at least the college applications where he claimed Kenyan citizenship.

Obama is not afraid of Iran having a nuclear weapon, he is afraid that if US ships are lost to Iran’s shore to ship missiles, he will lose the election. Israel is truly on its own. IMHO he will soon pull those ships out of the Gulf.

How do you know they haven’t?
Obama still controls the largest Army and arsenal on the planet. Not to mention his Chicago connections, and his National Security Forces.
I think the world is terrified to openly defy Obama.

“I think the world is terrified to openly defy Obama.”

Could that be true? Militarily, economically, politically?

No one abides a traitor.

Knowledge, in these times breeds fear. The fear that comes from the realization that the only way to save yourself involves killing your follow man. So people would rather avoid it. No "reasonable" person would act that way. The MSM HOPES for some bullshit story. Some "buzzz" some "sound byte". They are spineless. The 99% are spineless. So ya'll push it off until it comes down to a point where the only "reasonable" way to save yourself is to slaughter that "good morning" motherf'er standing next to you on the elevator AND every one else on the second floor...

Then again....

Knowledge, in the hands of those who are not afraid...

...formed this nation....
