Obama: "Yes, I Interfered in Iraq Negotiations"

Although it's against the law for a US citizen to negotiate with foreign governments, that's not the reason I think Obama should be banished to ....say....Afghanistan.

He was maniuplating Iraq for his own political purposes--and the campaign ADMITS IT!

Yesterday, Taheri accused Obama of attempting to derail a status-of-forces agreement between the US and Iraq by telling the Iraqis to wait until after the American elections and stop negotiating with the Bush administration.

So how does the Obama campaign respond?

Obama’s national security spokeswoman Wendy Morigi said Taheri’s article bore “as much resemblance to the truth as a McCain campaign commercial.”

In fact, Obama had told the Iraqis that they should not rush through a “Strategic Framework Agreement” governing the future of US forces until after President George W. Bush leaves office, she said.

That happens to be EXACTLY what the NYPost author claimed in his article.

The left seems pretty quiet on this one. Seems Obama has throw them under the bus. Again. But this is more cynical, as it totally discredits Obama on the war. Shoot, the folks at Folkbum aren't even trying to cover this one up.
