Did President Obama’s Comments to Russian Leader Border on Treason?


Treason: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason.”

Beware of open microphone! It might pick up something you didn’t mean for other people to hear. President Obama was unaware that a microphone was recording him when he asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Monday for “breathing room” until after the November 2012 election. It would be at that point that negotiations on missile defense could resume in earnest.

“On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space,” President Obama told Mr. Medvedev at the end of their 90-minute meeting. The “him” is apparently a reference to incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mr. Medvedev replied, “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”

Here’s what’s disturbing about this muted conversation. “This is my last election,” President Obama said. “After my election, I have more flexibility.” The Russian leader responded, “I understand. I transmit this information to Vladimir.”

Let me do my best to translate this for you:

After the election that I will win, I will be free to follow my own guidelines on disarmament. It’s at that point that I can give you what you want.

First, this is no way to negotiate with a superpower. Second, there are no assurances that a reduction in our nuclear arsenal will result in the reduction in the arsenal of the Russians. Third, the Russians do not have our best interests in view as evidenced by what we’re seeing in the the Middle East. Consider Syria:

As Syria takes criticism from almost all quarters, one nation — Russia — stands virtually alone in defending the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
While Arab League ministers discussed future steps on Syria, where 5,400 people have died in anti-government violence, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov issued a warning: no sanctions and no foreign troops. Lavrov says that for Russia, the red line is fairly clearly drawn. He says Moscow will not support any sanctions.

If President Obama’s whispered remarks were harmless, why hasn’t he made them known to the American public? Let’s see him run on his comments to outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. What will he do in November if re-elected that he can’t do now? He should tell us — NOW!
