Obama Reached Out To Al Qaida Long Before He Became President? Oh Really Now?

1-28-09

Now this seems a just a little bit odd to me.

Long before he was elected as U.S. President numero 44 Barack Hussein Obama was negotiating behind the scenes with “Arab intermediaries” in an attempt to establish a pre-presidential dialog with the likes of that fun loving roving band of terrorists al-Qaida. That’s according to what worldtribune.com (via Geostrategy-Direct.com.) claims in an article published online today.

Barack Obama was working with Arab intermediaries to establish an unofficial dialogue with Al Qaida long (I wonder how long…..long is? -ed.) before his election as the 44th U.S. president, according to a report in the upcoming weekly edition of Geostrategy-Direct.com. Al Qaida has offered what has been described as a truce in exchange for a U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to the report.

Obama has deemed the U.S. reconciliation with the Muslim world, including Iran, as his main foreign policy goal, sources quoted in the report said. The president has been aided by several Persian Gulf Arab Muslims with ties to Al Qaida’s leadership in Pakistan, they said.

Many may wonder, “what the hell was this guy doing conducting foreign policy as a presidential candidate when,

1) it’s not his job or place to do so, or to even think about it

2) our family poodle has as much foreign policy experience as Obama

3) he kept wandering around explaining to everyone that there is only one president at a time and as president-elect he was in no position to comment on anything

Then came his first sit down TV interview as a U.S. president granted to…..the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya satellite TV channel.

“Now, my job is to communicate the fact that the United States has a stake in the well-being of the Muslim world, that the language we use has to be a language of respect,” Obama said . “I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries.”

It’s been widely reported that Obama speaks Arabic, having the ability to speak multiple languages is a major plus in my book, but what Muslim countries did he live in besides Indonesia when he was a child?

For those that may not be following along there has been a firestorm of lawsuits unleashed alleging Obama was not born in this country and therefor is not eligible to become president per Article II Section I of our Constitution which reads:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

Many have claimed Obama was actually born in Kenya, his father’s homeland, and others have claimed he doesn’t qualify because his father was not a U.S. citizen and in fact was under British citizenship due to Kenya being a colony of Great Britain at the time of Obama junior’s birth.

One could literally, if so inclined, spend a weekend weaving through this site getting to the bottom of the court cases brought against Obama including many that have reached the Supreme Court.

I return to the opening statement and I wonder why someone, who may not have even won the Democratic primary (again I have no idea what the time frame was when the author of the article says “long before he became president”) and certainly had not yet been declared the victor over John McCain, had taken it upon himself to begin acting as though he already had the authority and standing to start making contacts or negotiations with al Qaida in an official capacity?

From the Democratic primary shenanigans to the incredibly weak ass effort put forth by John McCain, to the slobbering, fawning media it was beyond obvious the fix was in to get Obama installed into the White House.

Was it Obama’s Muslim ties that made him attractive to the powers that be, the very people that have the means to see to it that whoever they wanted in the Oval Office will in fact be sitting in that room come January 21st? Or was it something else? After all it has been impossible to gain access to ANY information about Obama’s background except for a couple of self authored (and even that is in dispute) books.

We are indeed…..living in interesting times.
