AFP: Obama camp hits back at Iraq double-talk claim

Earlier this week, the New York Post reporter “Amir Taheri quoted Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari” as saying that Barack Obama “. . .had secretly urged the Iraqis to postpone a deal to withdraw US troops until after November’s election.” Obama’s camp was quick to deny this. If this were true, Obama would be in big time hot water. Senators who want to be President don’t have the power to negotiate with other nations. That’s still the job of our current President. Until the waters have receded and the coronation, er, I mean inauguration, in January is complete, Obama is still just a citizen (of the world). Of course, no explanation from the Obama camp would be complete without completely confusing the issue. Here’s what Wendy Morigi said after taking the obligatory swipe at John McCain. According to AFP, Ms. Morigi explained that, “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.” Ahh, come again?!? Didn’t she say that Obama DID urge the Iraqis to postpone the deal?!? This is one wacky denial. Not sure they know the meaning of the word. Would love to see the State/Justice Departments get involved. Won’t happen though, I wager.
