WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama has signaled Tehran that the Washington would accept an civilian nuclear program in Iran if Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei can back up his recent claim that his nation “will never pursue nuclear weapons,” the Washington Post reported Friday.

According to the report, the verbal message was sent through Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who met with Khamenei last week. A few days prior to leaving for the trip, Erdogan held a two-hour meeting with Obama on the sidelines of the nuclear security summit in Seoul, in which they discussed what the Turkish leader would tell Khamenei about the nuclear issue.

He issued this statement AFTER he bowed before the grand imam and whispered, “come on bro... I’ll have more leeway after the election”.

Here’s the link to the original Washington Post article making the claim repeated by the Israeli paper: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obamas-signal-to-iran/2012/04/05/gIQApVLDyS_story.html

(If we’re not allowed to link Washington Post stories—I forget what the rule is now—please delete my post.)

Like I have said before, we have a gutless and unwilling populace, as well. If Obama can get away with high treason, and the media can get away as an accomplice, then anyone can do it. We ourselves have to change this, no elected politician, can or will.

Get your guns, get to DC, demand impeachment of Obama, rebuild congress from the ground up. Take away their pay, and impose term limits. If they can shit on the constitution to impose their agenda, then we need to restore it using force. The time for talk and niceties is over, because it is obvious no one is going to stop this man and his cronies, his blatant disregard for the law is disgusting.

I was wondering what news would break on Friday, and here it is... Pretty pathetic. Sure to help Obama with the Jewish vote. /sarc

Why a country with the world’s 4th largest oil reserves needs nuclear plants does not seem to even raise that idiot’s eyebrows.

Israel has to hit Iran now - alone - and the sooner the better. . . or is this planned disinformation? We'll see. .

If Obama wins a second term, there would be no stopping him and his radical anti-American agenda. Without re-election to think about, it would be full steam ahead.

This has always been our policy, even under Pres. Bush.
The problem has always been, that the IRI won’t allow free & open inspections wherever & whenever. They won’t now either, so this is a waste of time, again.

This is Obama trying to kick the can down the road until after the election....and then who knows......

Israel won’t wait that long.

I think it is what the Treaty says (the Nuclear Proliferation one, can’t think of the name now) that countries can have peaceful nuclear power- but I may be very wrong. The problem, of course, is that one can work for nuclear power or weapons, and at first, it cannot be proven which way one will go.
