In a stunning and incomprehensible move, Obama reaches out to the Iranian foreign legion, Hezballah. The same Hezballah that blew up Marine barracks in Lebanon in 1981. A Hezbo suicide bomber detonated a truck full of explosives at a U.S. Marine barracks located at Beirut International Airport; 241 U.S. Marines were killed and more than 100 others wounded. Hezb'Allah (the party of Allah) has been waging war on US interests, targeting its number one ally in the Middle East, Israel.
It is shocking that Obama is supporting terrorists and making it official US policy, whatever his personal affections are (anti-American and anti-semitic). The bottom line is he was hired by the good guys, that's who he is working for.
The Obama report has this: (hat tip qtc)
"Several US officials at different levels and more or less close to the administration have asked to speak with [us], but we have refused," he said. "It is useless to have any dialog with the Americans since they regard us as terrorists."
The Washington Times on Wednesday revealed that the Obama administration had recently "sent a letter to [Iran's] supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khomenei, calling for an improvement in relations." But apparently, the administration is also seeking to forge a more amiable relationship with Hezbollah.
This presidency is really frightening. Andrew McCarthy here: Negotiating with Terrorists
President Obama is now way beyond mere support of such engagement. Under his leadership, and even as the mullahs who have been at war with the United States for 30 years are engaged in a Tiananmen-style crackdown, Obama is neck-deep in terrorist-for-hostages negotiations with Iran-backed killers who have American blood on their hands.
