Will The Most Damaging Obama Scandal Of All Be Buried Alive?

Here is an excerpt from Susan Duclos' 15 September blockbuster article on Obama's attempted manipulation of GIs troop withdrawals from Iraq for his own political purposes.

Iraqi government sources have revealed to the New York Post that Presidential candidate Barack Obama demanded Iraqi officials stop negotiations with the Bush Administration to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq. Fearful that the success in Iraq would harm his political aspirations, Obama sought to keep U.S. troops in Iraq so he can continue attacking the Bush Administration for not imposing a timetable for withdrawal.
And from the New York Post

Maliki's advisers have persuaded him that Obama will win - but the prime minister worries about the senator's "political debt to the anti-war lobby" - which is determined to transform Iraq into a disaster to prove that toppling Saddam Hussein was "the biggest strategic blunder in US history." [...]

Obama has given Iraqis the impression that he doesn't want Iraq to appear anything like a success, let alone a victory, for America. The reason? He fears that the perception of US victory there might revive the Bush Doctrine of "pre-emptive" war - that is, removing a threat before it strikes at America.
Despite some usual equivocations on the subject, Obama rejects pre-emption as a legitimate form of self -defense. To be credible, his foreign-policy philosophy requires Iraq to be seen as a failure, a disaster, a quagmire, a pig with lipstick or any of the other apocalyptic adjectives used by the American defeat industry in the past five years.

Here's Radarsite's original comment to Susan's 15 September posting: This could be, should be, the biggest story of the campaign. This more than any other scandal, or rumor of scandal should be the end of Barack Hussein Obama. However -- and this is a huge 'However' -- will the media give it the attention it so obviously deserves? Or will they bury it under a mass of propaganda and lies? Or, worse still, will they just try to ignore it? This is going to be a test of wills. The will of the American people versus the will of the media elite and the Internationalist, anti-Americanist Obama crowd. This should be, must be the most important story in this election. If we are to stand a chance of keeping our great country free and American, we simply cannot allow this monumental scandal to be swept under the rug.

It is now the morning of 16 September. And how is this major Obama scandal, this biggest story of the 2008 presidential campaign being covered? To see for myself I checked in on the latest editions of FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, and the Chicago Sun Times. And what did I discover? Did I find it 'buried under a mass of propaganda and lies' as I suspected it might be? Was it relegated to the bottom of the page after the latest Oprah interview? No, it simply was not there. What could very well be the most important and damaging story of this entire election campaign and it is just not there. Nothing. Not even a mention. A presidential candidate, who has passionately campaigned on the promise of immediate withdrawal of all American forces from Iraq, who has no legal authority whatsoever to negotiate on behalf of the United States, particularly when these negotiations were carried out in secret, we now discover had been surreptitiously attempting to pressure the Iraqi Government into delaying the departure of American troops to further his own personal political aims and not one of these major news outlets decided to cover the story.

This, then, is what it boils down to. It really is going to be us versus them. Us, the American people versus the leftist, Bush-hating, antiwar, elitist media, and the powerful Obama machine. They will purposely ignore it and hope it goes away. They will be counting on our proverbial short attention span. They are gambling that we will quickly lose interest in this story and move on to the next Oprah interview, or become so totally consumed in the possible Wall Street meltdown that we will just forget all about it.

But we won't, will we? What Barack Obama purportedly did in secret in Iraq was inexcusable, cynical, immoral, and quite possibly a crime. And we, the American people will see that this latest and most outrageous scandal will not be swept under the rug. Barack Obama must be brought to justice. Before the election. We must not, we can not let up. Our whole future is at stake.-rg
