Obama's Dangerous Alignments (http://townhall.com/columnists/KenBlackwell/2008/10/30/obamas_dangerous_alignments?page=2)
by <ACRONYM title="Ken Blackwell">Ken Blackwell</ACRONYM>

Last week an enemy of the United States spoke out and endorsed an American presidential candidate – Senator Barack Obama. Taken with other recent developments, voters should be deeply disturbed with this embrace of Mr. Obama’s campaign to become the U.S. commander- in-chief.

Ali Larijani is the Speaker of the Iranian Parliament, and was Iran’s representative to the United Nations who kept that international body from taking action regarding Iran’s program to expand its nuclear capabilities. On October 22, Speaker Larijani said that the regime in Iran would like to see Mr. Obama elected president.

Mr. Larijani is not the first hostile foreign leader to endorse or be aligned with Mr. Obama. In April, top Hamas advisor Ahmed Yousef also endorsed Mr. Obama. Mr. Obama’s long-time associate and self-described Marxist, Bill Ayers, actively backs him. Mr. Obama’s mentor and two-decade long spiritual leader, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, traveled to Libya to meet with the controversial Moammar Gadhafi. His church published a pro-Hamas piece on Rev. Wright’s “Pastor’s Page.” The article defended terrorism against Israel and denied Israel’s right to exist.
Mr. Obama’s political alignments are alarming.

Terrorist leaders never endorsed Bill Clinton, or Al Gore, or John Kerry. And to the best of my knowledge, terrorist leaders have never publicly supported a major party presidential nominee—until now.

There’s more. The L.A. Times has video of Barack Obama toasting an anti-Israel activist associated with the Palestinians, and standing by as an anti-Semitic poem was read. We don’t know the details, because the L.A. Times—which has endorsed Mr. Obama—refuses to allow anyone to see the video.

Also last week, someone said that electing Barack Obama would provoke America’s enemies to create an international crisis. If a Republican had made the charge, the media would be apoplectic. But they’re in a terrible bind because it was said by Mr. Obama’s running mate, Joe Biden.

Senator Biden said if Mr. Obama is elected, within six months there will be an internationally “generated crisis,” with the sole purpose of testing Mr. Obama. “Mark my words,” he ominously added, “I guarantee you, it’s going to happen.”

Mr. Biden is of the opinion that electing Mr. Obama would invite aggression from our enemies. That can only mean that Mr. Obama is seen as unready, indecisive and na´ve. He says he didn’t mean that. But what other explanation is there? Mr. Biden mentioned Mr. Obama’s age. Why he would say that? It infers Mr. Obama is too inexperienced and untested to stand against foreign threats.

This perception is understandable. Mr. Obama would be only the second president to never serve in uniform. He attended a church for twenty years where the pastor howls, “God damn America!” and worked with an unrepentant terrorist who bombed U.S. buildings.
Add to that Mr. Obama’s promises. He pledges to de-fund our weapon development programs like missile defense, to cut defense spending on programs that he (with no military expertise) deems unwarranted, and seems to be appallingly deferential to foreign opinions.
When Mr. Obama’s inexperience and defense cutting promises are taken with his arresting plan to meet with the despots of Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba and Syria without preconditions, you have an invitation for geo-political mischief.

The highest priority for a U.S. president is safeguarding our nation as commander-in-chief.
Mr. Barack Obama is the most untested presidential candidate in a century, if not ever. Even Mr. Biden said several months ago that he should not be elected because he is not ready to be president. Mr. Biden condemned Mr. Obama’s vote to cut off funding for our troops currently in combat.

These are devastating indictments from Mr. Obama’s running mate. It is equally devastating that terrorists are actively endorsing Mr. Obama, while the L.A. Times protects him. Americans should expect more and demand more.

Iranian Speaker Larijani: Iran Prefers Obama As US President (http://www.nasdaq.com/aspxcontent/NewsStory.aspx?cpath=20081022%5CACQDJON200810221432DOWJONESDJONLINE000897.htm&&mypage=newsheadlines&title=Iranian%20Speaker%20Larijani:%20Iran%20Prefers%20Obama%20As%20US%20President)

MANAMA, Bahrain (AFP)--Iranian parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said Wednesday that Iran would prefer Democrat Barack Obama in the White House next year. Larijani also dismissed any idea that the U.S. would attack Iran.
"We are leaning more in favor of Barack Obama because he is more flexbile and rational, even though we know American policy will not change that much," Larijani said at a press conference during a visit to Bahrain.
How to deal with Iran and the crisis over its nuclear drive has been one of the foreign policy issues in the Nov. 4 race for the White House between Obama and Republican John McCain.
Larijani, a leading figure in the conservative camp in Iran, also said the United States was too busy dealing with the global financial crisis to consider waging an attack on Iran.
"The risk was low before," he said. "But now I am 100% certain that the United States will not unleash a war against Iran. The economic crisis has cost the United States$1.4 trillion and Washington is working to resolve its internal problems and not a war."
Washington severed ties with Iran in 1980 in the wake of the Islamic revolution. U.S. President George W. Bush famously denounced the country as part of an "axis of evil".
Tensions have mounted over Iran's nuclear program, which many Western countries believe is a cover for ambitions to build atomic weapons, although this is vehemently denied by Tehran.

6 months? Biden exaggerated. Could be 6 weeks or even 6 days. Iran is pulling out their Jimmy Carter playbook faster than you can say "hostage crisis" in Parsi.

Typical lib tactic. Ignore the issue and attack the redactor. That works on Jerry Springer. Not a big game changer in serious political discussion.
