Obama's 2008 Communication With Teheran

Report: Obama Sent Ambassador to Tehran to Assure Mullahs He Was Friend of Regime (Video) | The Gateway Pundit

Quote:

During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.

This "expose" was broadcast on Aug 29, 2014. It seems not to have gained much traction. I guess Benghazi was too important.

Whatever. Makes Joe Biden look even more foolish, if that is possible, with his recent remarks.

Peanut quickly goes OT.

But the link says this:

"The story is tangled and murky, and it may never be fully unraveled," Mr. Sick writes.
This has basically been debunked. And Sick's remarks shows he had a bag of nothing.

OTOH, the OP seems quite straightforward.


Thanks from Jimmyb and Tony

Reagan did cause a lot of arms to be shipped to Iran.....no one made that up, why do you think he did that? He also released the materials for the development of the first Islamic nuclear bomb, which had been seized by the Carter Administration, released by Reagan.

Well, you gotta admit that at least Obama didn't invite the mullahs to address a joint session of Congress....

The Gateway Pundit is a guy named Jim Hoft. He has a long history of offering up ridiculous conspiracy theories and out of context trickery. I offer to you, the forum reader, just one of his past gems.

Quote:
Hoft has shown that there are no depths he won't sink to in order to smear the people that he disagrees with. In May, President Obama honored slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl by signing the "Daniel Pearl Freedom of the Press Act." Obama's remarks at the signing made clear that he was honoring Pearl's memory (along with Pearl's widow and son.) Hoft took an out of context video clip of Obama saying Pearl's death "captured the world's imagination" in order to suggest that Obama was celebrating Pearl's murder. Hoft purported to correct Obama's "crazy sick" interpretation of Pearl's death by writing: "No, Barack. It was horrifying."

The OP is merely taking a podcsat from another source and putting it out there, IOW, the trolling Camelot has a bag of nothing. Poor Camelot, his hatchet job is another fail. Media Matters also twisted what Hoft actually said, no surprise in that.

And we all note that Camelot presents zero evidence that the OP is untrue.

Quote:
Daniel Pearl was not beheaded because he was a journalist.

Daniel Pearl was beheaded by Islamic extremists because he was an American and a Jew.

“My name is Daniel Pearl, I am a Jewish-American.”

On February 21, 2002, a videotape was released titled The Slaughter of the Spy-Journalist, the Jew Daniel Pearl. The text from the video reads in Arabic: “My name is (Daniel Pearl), I am a Jewish-American.”

Yesterday Barack Obama signed the toothless Daniel Pearl Freedom of the Press Act of 2009 named in honor of the Wall Street Journal reporter who was killed by terrorists in 2002. The bill promotes press freedom. The president declined to take questions from the media at the signing event.

Jennifer Rubin at Contentions Blog pointed out that Barack Obama forgot to mention that Daniel Pearl was murdered by Islamic extremists.
Word to Obama - Daniel Pearl Was Not Beheaded Because He Was a Journalist. He Was Beheaded Because He Was an American and a Jew - Breitbart

Quote:
That’s crazy sick. Obama told reporters yesterday that the video of Islamic radicals sawing off a Daniel Pearl’s head with a butter knife “captured the world’s imagination.”
“Obviously, the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world’s imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is.”
No, Barack. It was horrifying.

And… It had nothing to do with freedom of the press. They beheaded Daniel Pearl because he was an American and a Jew. They beheaded Daniel Pearl because they were Islamic radicals. Something you have not yet figured out.

I see nothing here that suggests Hoft alleged Obama was "celebrating" Pearl's death. Seems to be another faux Media Matters allegation.
