And Speaking Of Obama And Hamas..

From the London seems Barack Obama had to throw another one of his `advisers' under the bus. This time, for carrying on meetings 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. {...}

Mr McCain has high-lighted the Democrat’s pledge to negotiate directly with nations such as Iran – whose leaders talk of wiping Israel off the map – and a statement from Hamas saying that it hoped that Mr Obama would win the presidency.

Whoopsie..another one bites the dust.

Of course, Obama must not have been
listening that day when Malley let it be known he was dealing with Hamas.

Yep, McCain is "losing his bearings" by saying that Hamas has endorsed Obama.

Now, I wonder where Hamas could have gotten the idea that Obama would be symphathetic to their agenda?

Atlas Shrugs website has been reporting on Robert Malley and his Hamas ties since January.
This is not a new story. I have posted about it for several months now on several blogs. It is another case of bad judgement from Obama or is it? Perhaps it is just how Obama really is. He is a Marxist and dangerous. The remarks of Ted Kennedy yesterday about Hillary show that Obama is only wanted to win so they can use him to further their cause ( the far lefties ) - I don't understand people not seeing through this whole thing and not being fearful of all of these dangerous characters that Obama is hooked up with (not to mention his mean wife who wants to tear out Bill Clinton's eyeballs.

Here's a perfect example of the Press not doing it's job...there's plenty of information that should be investigated...or at least, discussed publicly...BEFORE...the election. We're headed for a serious problem with this Obama coronation...Someone, please check it out, before it's too late.

So, Mr. or Ms. anonymous, are you really accusing Barack Hussein Obama of being a political FRAUD? Are you really trying to say BHO is a CHARLATAN, a MOUNTEBANK? Are you really trying to infer that BO is MISREPRESENTING what his views really are, and that he is really just FALSIFYING his real intentions for what he has in store for the United States? Are you really trying to say the Mr. O is just DECEIVING us all into thinking he is a mainstream Democrat instead of the far-left radical that YOU believe his is? If so, then I agree with you. If not, then I disagree with you

Barack Obama is a political FRAUD!

Yeah, I just can't figure out why Hamas might endorse BHO...
