WOW, HE JUST CAN'T WAIT TO SELL THEM OUT, HUH?:

Obama and Iraqi Foreign Minister Have Different Memories of their Conversation (Jake Tapper, June 18, 2008, ABC News: Political Punch)

On Monday, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, talked on the phone with the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari.

At a press availability in Michigan, I asked Obama if Zebari had expressed any concern to him that his plans to withdrawal U.S. troops as president would undo any security advances.

"No, he did not express that," Obama said. [...]

But today comes this report that Zebari told the Washington Post "that he had some frank talk for the candidate: 'The foreign minister said ‘my message’ to Mr. Obama ‘was very clear...Really, we are making progress. I hope any actions you will take will not endanger this progress.’"

Tapper is a lefty loon, but is doing maybe the best job in the MSM holding Obama's feet to the fire. I'm not sure what that means and it might not mean anything about anything but Jake Tapper, but it could mean that the left is wary about being used again.

Or, just maybe, Tapper hasn't been caught up in religious hysteria. Maybe it just means he doesn't like the idea that Our Messiah (pbuh) is in reality a product of decades of Chicago Politics, and understands what that ultimately means for his causes. (If an "honest politician" is one that stays bought, in Chicago an 'honest politician" is one that cheats all his buyers without showing favoritism.)
