Move America Forward's new political action committee (PAC) has issued a press release today condemning the actions of Senator Obama.(
Iraqi government sources have revealed to the New York Post that Presidential candidate Barack Obama demanded Iraqi officials stop negotiations with the Bush Administration to withdraw
“If these allegations prove to be true, it should be the end of the Obama campaign,” asserted MAF Freedom PAC Chairman, Melanie Morgan.
“Obama should have the decency to recognize that he lacks the moral character to serve as Commander-in-Chief, and he should withdraw from the ticket. I have never heard of any candidate deliberately trying to get Americans killed to prove their point.”
According to the New York Post story, not only did Obama seek to get the Iraqi’s to stop negotiating with Americans on the troop drawdown, he also tried to bully General David Petraeus to agree to a hard withdrawal date.

While telling his supporters his plan to withdraw troops from Iraq within 16 months, Barack Obama was doing something far different while he was in Iraq. He was trying to talk Iraqi officials into delaying the agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence from Iraq, Zebari said in an interview with The New York Post.
According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.
"He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington

Newly released Federal Election Commission documents reveal that Democratic party presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois accepted a hefty $7250 contribution this summer from terrorist supporter Jodie Evans, a co-founder of the anti-American group Code Pink.
The contribution was made through a hybrid fundraising vehicle, the Obama Victory Fund, that splits contributions between Obama's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The records were filed on July 30 and July 31 of this year. Evans designated $2300 of the $7250 for Obama's general election campaign, the maximum allowed by law.
The contribution was apparently given by Evans for a June 24 Hollywood fundraiser for the Obama Victory Fund attended by Obama and Evans. Evans' Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin described the meeting between Obama and Evans at the fundraiser in a video posted days after the event.
Evans has played a key role in Obama's campaign from the very beginning when she co-hosted Obama's breakout Hollywood fundraiser weeks after he announced his candidacy in February 2007. Evans' role was to peel off supporters in Hollywood's progressive community from New York Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy and deliver them to Obama. She contributed the maximum $2300 for his primary campaign and is a bundler of between $50,000 and $100,000 for Obama.
Evans has continued to rally the progressive community for Obama through efforts like the open letter she published in February 2008 that was co-signed by feminists on the left and another open letter published by The Nation on July 30, 2008.
Obama has rejected several calls by military family groups to reject Evans because of her pro-terrorist activities and statements. Evans openly supports the terrorists in Iraq; sympathizes with Osama bin Laden over the 9/11 attacks; works with state sponsors of terrorism and anti-American governments including Hugo Chavez's to undermine America's efforts to win the war on terror.
Evans and Code Pink have worked to undermine morale on the homefront by taunting wounded soldiers and their families at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and by leading a campaign to drive the Marines out of Berkeley, California--demonizing the Marines as "assassins" and likening their recruiting office to a porn shop.
Obama has said he knows he needs to earn the trust of the military and their families as commander-in-chief. His steadfast acceptance of Jodie Evans as part of his campaign team shows that he is not to be trusted with the lives of America's best.
