Barack Obama Wrote a Secret Letter to Iran’s Khamenei About Fighting Islamic State, ISIS



And you wonder why the Democrats got a real “ass-whuppin” on November 4 in the 2014 midterm elections. As reported in the NRO, President Barack Hussein Obama penned  a “secret” letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, in an effort according to sources, to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) and to nudge Iran’s religious leader closer to a nuclear deal. Yes, the same Islamic, Jew hating leader who has called for the death of Israel. WOW. What the hell is this president thinking? As The Daily Caller opines, “the President of the United States has had a tough week. First he watched the voters thoroughly repudiate him. Now the news is out that he’s been begging and pleading for help from the Supreme Leader of Iran, who has no time for him either.

November 24, the deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran, approaches, and things aren’t looking good. With less than three weeks left, Iran is adopting a hardline negotiating position. And although there’s time left to reach a good deal, President Obama’s current strategy is problematic.

Yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported that last month Obama wrote his fourth “secret” letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. According to sources, he did so in an effort “aimed both at buttressing the Islamic State campaign and nudging Iran’s religious leader closer to a nuclear deal.”

No problem, right? After all, what harm can a letter do? Actually, a lot. The Journal quotes a senior White House official who provides context for Obama’s outreach: “We’ve passed on messages to the Iranians … saying our objective is against ISIL. We’re not using this as a platform to reoccupy Iraq or to undermine Iran.”

Saying this to Iran is the diplomatic equivalent of telling an ill-reputed used-car salesman, “Money is no object, I don’t need a test drive, and I’m desperate to buy today.” It’s not very clever.

Iran’s hardliners are likely to see the president’s latest letter as a verification of increasing American malleability. But there’s a deeper issue here. As I noted in September, the administration’s willingness to see the best in Iran without challenging the worst manages to inspire only the latter. While we offer friendship, from Beirut to Baghdad, from Sanaa to Washington, Iran forges power through violent opportunism. Members of the Lebanese and Iraqi parliaments recognize Iran’s proclamations of peace for what they are: a thin veil concealing an absolutist agenda. Not incidentally, many American military personnel, through personal experience, share the same skeptical view

UPDATE I: Obama’s Letter to Iran Rattles Congressional Nerves.

House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) expressed concern Thursday when asked about President Barack Obama recent overture to Iran, in which the president outlined a shared interest in countering Islamic State militants in the region.

“I don’t trust the Iranians, I don’t think we need to bring them into this,” Mr. Boehner said.

Lawmakers — especially Republicans, but also many Democrats  — want to have a say in any agreement that comes out of international nuclear talks by a Nov. 24 deadline. Secret communications between the administration and Tehran are likely to raise eyebrows.

UPDATE II: Mitt Romney Calls President Obama letter to Iran leader an “astonishing” and “an enormous error.”

Mitt Romney slammed President Barack Obama on Friday for reaching out to Iran in the fight against Islamic State militants, calling the president’s recent letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei “astonishing” and “an enormous error.”

“I was frankly stunned that the president of the United States would write a letter of that nature and in effect, legitimize a nation and a leadership which is violating international norms and is threatening the world,” the 2012 Republican presidential candidate told the audience of the Israeli American Council’s inaugural national conference at the Washington Hilton.

2016 cannot come soon enough, this president is just too damn dangerous for America.

      Would the “the secret letter” reveal that the Obama Administration betrayed the June, 2008 promises to Israel regarding no Iranian nukes as well as an undivided Jerusalem .

      Obama surprise: Says Jerusalem will remain undivided
      Thursday, June 05, 2008

      Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama asssured American Jews that he would not allow Iran to acquire nuclear arms, and that Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of Israel, a surprisingly tough stance.


      Solicitor General: Israel Has No Claim to Jerusalem, Just as Russia Has No Claim to Crimea
      November 4, 2014

      Lawyers for the Obama administration compared Israel’s control of Jerusalem to Russian claims over the Ukrainian territory of Crimea during oral arguments this week before the Supreme Court in a case concerning the rights of U.S. citizens to list Jerusalem as part of Israel on their passports.

      U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, who is rumored to be in the running to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, drew the comparison on Monday while he attempted to convince the Supreme Court that Jerusalem is not officially part of Israel.

      Never in the history of the United States has a man been elected that thumbed his nose at the people and the law like this one. If the country survives this treasonous person, the Democrat/Socialist party should not.

      A look at the map of all the states and counties shows that except for the liberal socialist West coast West of I-5,some big cities and isolated pockets that the Democrats won, everything else is Red. In Texas, they did win in the counties in the Rio Grande valley and North East to San Antonio.
