Barack Obama is mad as hell that Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group, endorsed him for President. Now, however, it has emerged that one of his aides was talking to Hamas.
About what? What kind of aid he would give them if elected President? How he can invite them to the White House for tea?
Barack Obama sacks adviser over talks with Hamas
One of Barack Obama’s Middle East policy advisers disclosed yesterday that he had held meetings with the militant Palestinian group Hamas – prompting the likely Democratic nominee to sever all links with him.
Robert Malley told The Times that he had been in regular contact with Hamas, which controls Gaza and is listed by the US State Department as a terrorist organisation. Such talks, he stressed, were related to his work for a conflict resolution think-tank and had no connection with his position on Mr Obama’s Middle East advisory council.
“I’ve never hidden the fact that in my job with the International Crisis Group I meet all kinds of people,” he added.
Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for Mr Obama, responded swiftly: “Rob Malley has, like hundreds of other experts, provided informal advice to the campaign in the past. He has no formal role in the campaign and he will not play any role in the future.” The rapid departure of Mr Malley followed 48 hours of heated clashes between John McCain, the Republican nominee-elect, and Mr Obama over Middle East policy.
Once this guy was a key aide, and now he is just a lackey who can be fired at will.
What was his role? Obviously, he is (and now was) a key advisor to Obama on the Middle East. And he is talking to Hamas?
What kind of shit is this? And why did this end up in a British newspaper and not on page one of every American newspaper? Are the MSM so desperate to have this scumbag Obama win that they will not even report anything bad about him unless forced to at gunpoint?
