Obama's Claim

But why tell one lie when you can tell more?

Earlier this year, three-fourths of the Senate voted in favor of the Kyl-Lieberman Amendment,  designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.  Among those who voted for the resolution were Hillary Clinton, Richard Durbin, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer.

Obama voted against it, effectively standing with the IRGC.

Yesterday at the AIPAC conference, however, Obama expressly stated that the IRGC was a terrorist organization.  His campaign explained his opposition to the resolution naming the IRGC a terrorist entity by claiming that the resolution contained language about military action -- but Joe Lieberman, the bill's author, said bluntly, "It has none of that."

Obama's claim is
just another lie.
Don't call Barack Obama an appeaser -- call him what he is -- a liar.

In his speech Wednesday before the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, Obama said the military option is "on the table" for dealing with Iran's nuclear program in stark contrast to his earlier statements.

During a debate last summer, he said he would be willing to meet with Iranian leaders and other American adversaries "without preconditions" during the first year of his presidency.

Now, he says, "[A]s president of the United States, I would be willing to lead tough and principled diplomacy with the appropriate Iranian leaders at a time and place of my choosing, if and only if it can advance the interest of the United States.  That is my position.  I want to be absolutely clear."

Yo, Obama, "...if and only if it can advance the interest of the United States," is a PRECONDITION.

Obama campaign officials, believing the electorate is stupid and knowing the press won't question Obama, insisted the presumptive Democratic nominee has not changed his position.
Obama Expresses Readiness
Barack Obama has returned to the no-preconditions policy for meeting with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, according to Obama foreign-policy adviser Anthony Lake.  Financial Times also discovered in its interview with Lake that Obama has reversed himself on Iraq, now saying that the withdrawal is off.  Obama also now embraces John McCain’s call for a League of Democracies, despite his campaign’s rejection of it earlier this week:

Obama and his advisers stress the Democratic candidate’s readiness to sit down with Iranian leaders without conditions.

"Unless you assume that [Iranian negotiators] have IQ's less than those of eggplants, they are not likely to make major concessions for the privilege of speaking with us.  So the question is: what is your strategy for the talks?" Mr Lake said. …

He stressed that Obama, even after withdrawing troops from Iraq over 16 months as he has promised, would maintain "a residual presence for clearly defined missions."  These would include military training, and "preparedness to go back in if there are specific acts of genocidal violence."

Mr. Lake was sympathetic to aspects of Mr McCain’s idea of a League of Democracies, one of the centerpieces of the Republican’s foreign policy plans.
