Rumor Confirmed: Obama Traded Missile Shield for Russian Help With Iran That Never Appeared
— Gabriel Malor

In May 2009, rumors surfaced that President Obama was planning to leave several European countries exposed to Russian ambition if Russia would agree to help keep nukes out of Iran.

Rumors confirmed: according to the Wikileaks cables, Obama proposed a trade -- he would cancel the Polish missile shield if Russia would support sanctions for Iran.

The whistle blowing web site, publishing diplomatic cables and other documents via The New York Times, the Guardian (UK) and other media outlets, show that George Bush’s anti-missile shield plan to station 10 interceptor rockets in Poland not far from the Kaliningrad (Russia) border and a radar system in the Czech Republic was seen as an obstacle by Washington in getting tougher sanctions against Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

The diplomatic cables show that the US believes that Iran has already received missiles from North Korea which could threaten western Europe.

The missile shield was officially canceled in September 2009. Shortly thereafter President Obama met with President Medvedev who came out of the meeting conceding "in some cases, sanctions are inevitable."

A diplomatic victory for Obama? Not remotely. Less than a month later, Russia reversed itself and declared that "[t]hreats, sanctions and threats of pressure in the current situation, we are convinced, would be counterproductive." After the US and the EU imposed tough penalties on Iran in September of this year, Russia immediately condemned the sanctions regime and started finding ways to undermine it.

Obama sold out our allies to Russia for a bill of goods.

Thanks to Ben.

3 So are we okay with the WikiLeaks now...?

More seriously- I guess the confirmation is "good" (for a given value of the word) but I'd still rather the documents had stayed secure.

And Obama needs to go home now.  I would officially rather be dealing with President Biden at this point.

17 The diplomatic cables show that the US believes that Iran has already received missiles from North Korea which could threaten western Europe.

I don't doubt it.  Remember that the Norks are also assisting Syria with their chem/bio and missile programs, and Syria under the Chinless-one is firmly within the Iranian sphere of influence.

These missiles could also be loaded onto container ships and be used to threaten the US homeland.

24 And this is a surprise?

Obama is a weakling and the entire world knows it. What's more, Obama either knows it too and doesn't care because the aim is to eliminate American exceptionalism (or oppressive colonialism in Obamaspeak), or he doesn't know it because his narcissism is blinding. Either way, we're boned until 2012 and some undetermined period thereafter as the consequences of his legacy are realized. Consider what Carter saddled us with and you get the introductory chapter to the possible book historians will write of our collapse.

He said it, he said that when he was listening to Ed Asner's "BS conspiracy theories" on 9-11, it just dawned on him that lefties just hate this country. Damn straight. Obama too, he figured that if we just lie down, other countries will say "finally, we can have peace, now that the US is nice!" Not, "now we can win because the US surrendered"

44 I said in a morning thread that the Wikileaks debacle could end up as a "plus" for the nation, if only people will look carefully at the meaningful revelations.

Here is more evidence that our national leader is an America-hating, inexperienced, posturing fool, who surrounds himself with others -- Hitlery Clinton and Eric Shabazz Holder -- who are equally reprehensible.

No one should give a shit if some drone of an ambassador yammers about Qaddafi's strange quirks. But the idea that the Osama Obama regime sells out our allies, turns a blind eye to Red China's dealings with a terrorist state and generally acts as if the country they are sworn to defend isn't worth protecting, should be provoking calls in Congress for impeachment.

After the Mohammedan Mouthpiece is shown the door, the Department of State needs to be shut down, all employees fired, and a new agency to handle foreign affairs should be set up. A smaller one, with less authority to play the "diplomacy" game by its own rules, as State has done for decades..

Yes, that little fuck who passed the secrets along to Assange, Assange himself, and the enemy aiders-and-abettors at the NY Slimes all deserve punishment. In the case of Manning, precedent suggests a firing squad, and I'd think that should apply to Assange as well. We also have to tighten up our security to ensure that this doesn't happen again.

But this is an opportunity to begin short-circuiting the Traitor-in-Chiefs plans to destroy America. If anyone has the Dangling Courage Units to take that on.

98 89 Russia cancelled their sale of the already paid for @ 300 anti aircraft system. And you know something else? If Europe wants OUR shield let THEM pay for it.

Dumbass, they'll likely "sell" the S300 system to Belarus, who will in turn, "sell" it to Iran.  And that agreement which the PM signed can be rescinded at any time.

Actually, they did. The two biggest cheerleaders for Hiss were - no prizes for guessing this - the NYT and WaPo, who flayed Whitaker Chambers mercilessly and extolled the virtues of Hiss. (Read Chambers's book, Witness, for details.) Chambers was alleged to be a liar, a drunkard, a homosexual (in short, a Democrat. Kidding. Sorta.)

Chambers also makes clear that he would've gone down, and gone down hard, but for the efforts of ...Richard Nixon, who turned the whole affair around. From this perspective, it's hard not to see Watergate as payback.

167 159 As to the "accident" in which the Polish president died last April, it is difficult to tell with certainty whether it was an assassination. That particular president was likely to be voted out of office anyway, so there was little short-term political gain for Russia. However, as a statement of what Russia is again capable of, it certainly delivered a message to Poland. Other sinister things have happened since - e.g. the head of a team of Polish experts who were supposed to investigate the airplane crash died in a mysterious car accident shortly before he was supposed to leave for Russia. In communist Poland, a "car accident" was basically the signature way for secret police to murder people who had done something to the government. So, basically, the whole situation and its aftermath does look like Russia reasserting itself in Poland in the traditional fashion of all Russian governments.

169 Everyone seems to be missing the distinct possibility that it was the Russians who introduced Stuxnet into the Iranian nuclear complex. Abandoning sanctions may have just been a cover for the real operational objective - disabling the Natanz and Behsher nuclear facilities by cyber sabotage. That way, the Russians get to keep selling stuff to the Iranians, while simultaneously helping to sabotage the project. Gee, Putin wouldn't do that, would he?

You spent you're penny and mine messing up the first deal and now I'm locked into following the neocon course because you proved them right. That's the way it goes. " But nope, he's a sellout transnational utopian weasel wanting to punish those who fearfully cling to their quaint outmoded notions of 'sovereignty and borders' and reward those who stand in the way of the arrogance of the last super power even if they are classic bad guys because hey...he won, and that means he gets to control the scope and direction of the paradigms.
