Obama’s Meddling In Iraq

Posted by: Curt @ 3:18 pm in Barack Obama, The Iraqi War

Mohammed from Iraq The Model writes in a new post today about the new SOFA agreement, and the resistance against it from all corners:

The status of forces agreement (SOFA) can be regarded as the crown jewel of the U.S.-led change in Iraq. It’s not an overstatement to say that it represents an aspect of victory in this war. By victory I mean that it will mark the beginning of a time in which Iraq is officially a partner of the U.S., as it will join Iraq and the U.S. in a new relationship that serves the national interests of both countries. Above all, it will be a major boost for the effort in the war on terror as it will guarantee that Iraq will not fall prey to extremists.

Mohammed wonders why this crown jewel of the regime change in Iraq is being shot down from many quarters. Iran disagreeing with it is a given. It will prevent them from getting a foothold, and more power, in Iraq.

But what he does find surprising is the fact that some of the obstruction is coming from a Presidential candidate. Wanna take a guess on which one?

What I find surprising is that someone from America is trying to obstruct the treaty. Believe it or not, there’s actually a guy who has no executive authority whatsoever — except in opinion polls — who is trying to bypass the actual top diplomats of the United States and undermine their negotiation efforts with a friendly state, at a time of war.

I was hoping that presidential candidates would not put their electoral objectives above those of their nation. Alas, blinding greed and selfishness seem to prevail sometimes.

I don’t dare suggest that Obama wanted to obstruct the treaty because it threatens Iran and other despots in the Middle East; I’m sure his purpose is different. The thing is that his purpose is also different from that of the U.S. or of Iraq — two friendly states looking forward to building long-lasting cooperation based on shared interests and mutual respect. We want victory in the war; Obama wants victory in elections — this is the problem. I’m not sure how or if people here think the treaty might affect the presidential race, but in Iraq and the Middle East people think that signing the treaty before elections would be regarded as a victory for Republicans that could propel McCain to the White House. Again Iran and many in the Middle East don’t want McCain to be in the White House. I guess that’s one thing they have in common with Obama.

By George! I think he got it!

Don’t have to look far for the evidence either:

Will the MSM stop taking sides in the election and do their jobs? Will they investigate Mr. Sinclair’s allegations of drug use and sex with Obama in 1999?  Will they dig into Obama’s past as hard as they have jumped on Sarah Palin? Will they look deeply into Obama’s relationships with William Ayers, Rev. Wright, Tony Rezko, Acorn, and all the rest? Will they look into the Democratic involvement in Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac failures? Will they ask Obama about Berg v. Obama? Will they demand answers about his birth certificate?  Will they call Sen. Obama to task for his possible violations of the Logan Act in Iraq and Kenya?  Unfortunately, I don’t think so.
