Obama the playground taunter

His merchants of betrayal coddle Iran

ANALYSIS/OPINION:
It is one thing to shrink from the fight. It is one thing to melt in

 terror over the unimaginable savagery of the tactics of

 Islamic radicals. It is one thing to become so paralyzed with

 fear that your knees buckle and you collapse into the bloody

 folds of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s skirts.
That is the choice President Obama has made, with steady

 guidance from Secretary of State John Kerry, who will soon

 assume the title as history’s greatest buffoon from former 

President Jimmy Carter and former British Prime Minister 

Neville Chamberlain.
These men — President Obama and Mr. Kerry — are so

 many fathoms out of their depth that the best they can do for

 civilization is to toss control of the entire Middle East into the

 hands of the Iranians. That really and truly is their strategy.
Let Iran figure it out, they say. Let them castrate the gays. Let

 them lop off the hands of petty thieves. Let them enslave

 little girls into lifetimes of servitude.
It is one thing to command the world’s most powerful military

 force with such cowardice, devoid of any convictions. It is 

one thing to dismiss the lives of so many innocents with such

 cavalierness.


But it is entirely something else — something far more

 despicable — to turn against your own, to betray your allies.

 To forsake the very people whose rights and freedoms you 

swore to defend and uphold.
This tendency by President Obama and his merchants of

 betrayal in the State Department to coddle Iran has been

 increasingly obvious the closer they get to reaching a deal to

 allow Tehran to enrich uranium.
Not that the deadly theocratic dictatorship would ever use

 such a substance for a nuclear bomb. No, they are just

 funnin’ around when they say “Death to America” and call for

 wiping Israel off the map. That is why Ali Khamenei is

 always smiling in all the pictures you have ever seen of him.

 Funny guy.
We first saw this administration’s betrayal of the American

 people and Congress after a group of U.S. senators wrote a

 letter warning Iran that any deal to allow the rogue sponsor

 of terrorism to enrich uranium without approval from the 

United States Senate was not worth the paper it was printed

 on. Any elementary student of U.S. government knows that

 any such deal with a foreign country must be approved by

 the Senate.
Instead of using this rather brazen missive to drive a harder

 bargain with Iran, President Obama chose instead to use it

 to attack and demean the U.S. Congress and level 

playground taunts that most people outgrow by the time they

 reach high school.
“I’m embarrassed for them,” President Obama told an 

Internet website.
The latest example comes in the form of furious leaking to

 The Wall Street Journal by “senior officials” in the Obama

 administration accusing Israel — our staunchest and most

 important ally in the Middle East — of spying on U.S.

 negotiations with Iran to allow Iran to enrich a substance

 required to create the most powerful bomb known to

 mankind.
The shock! Israel is spying on negotiations to allow a very 

close neighbor and mortal enemy to manufacture the 

substance needed to create a device that would eliminate the

 entire country from the map? And the Obama administration

 is surprised by this? They are upset about this?
This administration’s whorishness is further intensified when

 the very same story reveals that U.S. officials 

discovered Israel’s dastardly spying — only because they 

were spying on Israel!
So what gives? For all of modern time, allies have spied on

 one another in situations like this. Why is the administration

 so upset?
Well, the answer to that question is also found in the very 

same Wall Street Journal story.
“It is one thing for the U.S. and Israel to spy on each other,”

 the story quotes a “senior U.S. official” briefed on the matter

 — meaning a White House press flunky. “It is another thing

 for Israel to steal U.S. secrets and play them back to U.S.

 legislators to undermine U.S. diplomacy.”
So there you have it. Amid all the gasps and feigning 

disapproval, they are not even upset about Israel obtaining

 U.S. “secrets” through spying. They are upset

 about Israel conveying those U.S. “secrets” to U.S.

 lawmakers.
Is there any doubt anymore whose side these people are on?
