IS THE “GRAY LADY” PLAYING POLITICS IN AN EFFORT TO HELP OBAMA?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Oct. 21, 2012) — As The Post & Email reported early today, The New York Times ran an article on Saturday claiming that the United States and Iran have agreed to hold “one-on-one” talks about Iran’s nuclear enrichment program after “intense, secret exchanges between American and Iranian officials that date almost to the beginning of President Obama’s term” allegedly occurred.
While The Times apparently stands by the article, almost every other news outlet has refuted the story which prominently quotes a “Bush-era official,” R. Nicholas Burns, as having said that “It would be unconscionable to go to war if we haven’t had such discussions.”
Boston.com is still running the story without a refutation.
It is reported that Iranians in general want Obama to be re-elected.
Sen. Richard Durbin (R-IL) appeared on Fox News earlier today quoting Mr. Burns’s alleged statement and crediting Obama with “putting pressure on Iran to sit down and finally acknowledge that they cannot have a nuclear weapon,” while Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that Iran “continues to enrich” uranium whether or not “talks” take place. Graham believes that the Iranians “are trying to continue a dialogue using our election cycle” and stated that he “would like to talk with Israel before we make any major decisions with Iran.”
Neither senator positively confirmed that the report in The New York Times was true.
Where did The New York Times acquire its information? Who are the “Obama administration officials” who allegedly communicated with someone on staff at the newspaper?
Who is the “U.S. intelligence official” who stated that the intelligence following the attack on the Benghazi, Libya consulate showed that it was not “pre-planned,” as all mainstream news media have now reported for at least the last four weeks?
Did the intelligence community believe it was a terrorist attack before they didn’t?
Are members of the media speaking with real people or phantoms of the Obama regime?
NBC News, which is still carrying the New York Times article, has now embedded a link to an article written by its own Andrea Mitchell quoting a “source” as having said, “Back-channel talks but no US-Iran Deal on One-to-One Nuclear Meeting.” The opening paragraphs of the story indicate that Iran has not cooperated to even confer in six-way talks, stating, “The official pointed out that there have been bilateral talks in the past – but that Iran refused to even meet with the P5 +1 during the recent United Nations meetings. He said the Iranians know there will be no agreement unless they give up their nuclear program.”
The P5 +1 consists of the nations of Great Britain, China, France, the United States, Germany and Russia. Discussions with Iran are reportedly “stalled.”
Mitchell then reported that the Obama regime “is not happy that the story came out before the debate,” but is the exact opposite actually the case? Was the information leaked, or made up, on purpose, two days “before the debate?”
If the White House can purport to be “the most transparent” in U.S. history but conduct “secret exchanges” with Iran, if true, what else is it hiding? Obama’s real birth certificate and Social Security number? “No more secrecy,” Obama had promised in 2008, “so that you know what your government is doing.”
The White House media staff has refused to answer emails sent by The Post & Email about Obama’s questionable identity and citizenship documentation, deemed to be “computer-generated forgeries” by a law enforcement investigation. His college transcripts, which some say could show that he attended college as a foreign national, have never been released.
The Obama regime has leaked national security information; identified the Navy SEALS as those who killed Osama bin Laden, some of whom were killed 90 days later when their helicopter crashed in Afghanistan; and demanded that certain news and information be pulled from internet sites. Photos apparently deemed unflattering have been published and removed within minutes or hours.
“We control the media,” Obama’s former communications director, who admires Mao Tse Tung, had said. “A huge part of our press strategy was focused on making the media actually cover what Obama was saying as opposed to why the campaign was saying it…” she said.
A Pakistani doctor who assisted in locating bin Laden is now serving a 33-year prison term after the Obama regime revealed his identity.
WorldNetDaily has been reporting that the Obama regime has had secret meetings with the Iranians in Qatar to aid in his re-election bid.
One of the authors of The New York Times piece, Helene Cooper, was reportedly born in Africa, as Obama claimed to be for 16 years before he said he was born in Hawaii prior to seeking the presidency. Cooper has authored a book entitled The House at Sugar Hill: In Search of a Lost African Childhood,” although she apparently grew up in Liberia.
The other co-author of the article, Mark Landler, has a long history with the newspaper, having filed reports from “six continents” after beginning his career in 1987.
Did someone from Obama’s White House impart false information to Landler and Cooper, knowing that it would be published two days before the last presidential debate? Will the Obama White House seek out those who gave the information to the press?
Was it all designed to make Obama look good? What will the American people discover once Obama is out of office?
