You know what would really help this discussion? If eveyone identified who they support. It would shed light on each one's comments.

Wierd how Kissinger has gone back on his statement about negotiating when i saw him do it myself. Funny how someone can deny something that is recorded and a matter of fact.

Well, you can't use a person's word against him

From the Katie Couric interview:

"Palin was overlooking that Kissinger (with whom she met earlier this week) has backed negotiating directly with Iran over its nuclear program and other bilateral issues -- a point which Couric reconfirmed at the closer of her interview.

"Incidentally," said Couric, "we confirmed Henry Kissinger's position following our interview, he told us he supports talks if not with Ahmadinejad, than with high-level Iranian officials without preconditions.

When contacted by ABC News about the split in position with Kissinger, the McCain-Palin campaign had no immediate comment."

I believe Sen. Obama's characterization of Kissinger's position and I believe Katie Couric's account.
I am old enough to remember Kissinger's activities during the Viet Nam war, he lied then to support his 'handlers' and I have no doubt he'd lie now.

But, you don't see obama's backpedaling on his comment in a debate that HE (as president) would meet with this guy. There is a difference between the president sitting down and low,med,hi-level officials - which we are doing anyway.

That's the difference and obama got his butt spanked for trying to distort Henry's position.

Kissinger did not have to step in then because Obama did not invoke Kissinger's name to supprt his incredibly foolish statement.
Bloomberg asked him what he thought because of Obama's statement during the primary debates. He made his position known and now is trying to change what he said. I know that you will never concede to that so we can agree to disagree.

I was just thinking the same thing. He's 85.

McCain can't relate to anybody under 70 unless they're a lobbyist.

Again, where in that article does it say that the President should meet with Iran's leader without precondition? Do you Obama supporters even have any idea what you're talking about? It sure doesn't seem so. There's a world of difference between Obama's proposed Presidential meetings without precondition (YouTube debate - one of the statements Obama was trying to defend by invoking Kissinger in last night's debate) and SecState/High-Level Staff meetings with Iran's leader for negotiations.

Hillary got it right! Watch the contrast between Obmama's/Clinton's answers here. Clinton clearly shows how Obama's position on this is foolish and dangerous:

If you want to get right down to it. The President of Iran claims he was misquoted. He's said on numerous occasions since the years have past when he supposedly said it that, he wishes to live in peace with Israel

Only a Democrat would know this of course because they read newspapers and his US interview.

McCain's whole premise is a sham.
