The Real National Scandal: Putinís Letter to Obama

Appalling as the Benghazi, AP, and IRS scandals are, this dwarfs them all.

This puts US national survival, and hundreds of millions of lives at stake.

The head of Russia’s National Security Council has arrived in the US on a two-day visit for top-level talks on key stumbling blocks in bilateral relations. He will also deliver President Putin’s response to a letter President Obama sent in April.

Putin aide Yury Ushakov confirmed on Tuesday that Patrushev is carrying the presidential letter and is scheduled to meet Obama.

Among the US officials Nikolay Patrushev will meet during his trip is National Security Advisor Thomas Donilon, who brought Obama’s letter during his visit to Moscow last month. The content of the letter was never made public, but Russian officials said it was very constructive and listed several proposals for building cooperation between Washington and Moscow.

“Ideas covering some of the directions have new elements, which our country will study carefully and respond to accordingly,” Ushakov said while describing the letter’s contents.

Washington reportedly suggested drawing attention away from frustrating issues in Russian-US relations, such as Russia’s human rights record and the controversial Magnitsky Act, which the US adopted in response to alleged human rights violations.

Obama’s going to give away SDI.

Which the Left told us - for years - wouldn’t work and was a waste of money.

Hey, didn't he say he'd be more, um, "flexible" after the election?

Putin is going to grab Obama by his love handles.

Just like Reggie did.
