Like this guy doesn’t have enough on his plate. And if true, this guy may be a bigger liar than Bill Clinton ever was — and that’s saying something!
When the Lockerbie bomber was released from British prison in Scotland, there was more than a little rumbling from the U.S. Turns out that the Obama White House knew about it all along.
President Obama and the US Secretary of State fueled a fierce American backlash against Britain, claiming Abdelbaset Al Megrahi should have been forced to serve out his jail sentence in Scotland – but a senior Whitehall aide said their reaction was ‘disingenuous’.
British officials claim Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were kept informed at all stages of discussions concerning Megrahi’s return.
‘The US was kept fully in touch about everything that was going on with regard to Britain’s discussions with Libya in recent years and about Megrahi,’ said the Whitehall aide. ‘We would never do anything about Lockerbie without discussing it with the US. It is disingenuous of them to act as though Megrahi’s return was out of the blue.
So if the Obama Administration consented to the release of the Lockerbie bomber — for which British Petroleum was (allegedly) awarded oil leases in Libya — then what did the U.S. get for the release?
Mr Obama will join other heads of government in New York during the week of the nuclear summit for the opening of the 64th session of the UN General Assembly. The annual meeting of world leaders is this year raising expectations on a number of fronts.
UN officials hope a climate change debate on September 22 will give fresh impetus to the search for a global climate deal at Copenhagen in December. There are also hopes a possible meeting between Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister, and Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president, that Mr Obama would host, could lead to a breakthrough about a timetable for Middle East peace.
Uh-HUH. Keep dreaming on that one. Sounds to me like Chris Matthews and his Hardballs were so busy dry-humping the President’s Leg he had some kind of Obamagasm and dreamed that one up out of whole cloth.
US officials are concerned Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi might try to steal the limelight during his first visit to New York. A public outcry at the Libyan leader’s visit after he last month welcomed home Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, the freed Lockerbie bomber, has already stymied his plans to pitch his tent in Central Park.
The State Department has not ruled out the possibility that Mr Obama and Colonel Gaddafi would cross paths. They are both due to address the General Assembly on the same day, and the Libyan leader, whose country is a temporary member of the Security Council, is entitled to attend the nuclear summit session that Mr Obama will chair.
So . . . let’s see now. The President of the United States; the leader of the Free World ~!and~ a noted liar and prevaricator, will further add to his power base by chairing the Security Council of the United Nations next month.
