In the first article below, former CIA Director James Woolsey alerts us to a major betrayal by the Obama administration regarding missile defense.
In the second article Sarah Palin reacts with astonishment.
You ask why? Well, she has a history of involvement in national security issues and she has long advocated a strong missile defense. The National Guard troops who operate our GMD missile defense ground station and interceptors in Alaska reported to her when she was governor. Believe it or not.
This could well be a legitimate impeachable offense.
Giving Away the Farm
The Obama administration is freely giving Russia sensitive information about missile defense that weakens U.S. national security.
BY R. JAMES WOOLSEY, REBECCAH HEINRICHS | JUNE 7, 2011
"... Congress discovered that the administration has been working on a missile defense agreement with the Russians and that Moscow had requested that the United States share with it loads of sensitive U.S. missile defense technology and operational authority as part of that deal. In the administration's eagerness to please the Kremlin, it may just oblige.
"The House of Representatives has given a firm "no" to that prospect through its decision to ignore Obama's veto threat and approve the defense appropriations bill by a veto-proof vote of 322 to 96. The Senate may act similarly. On April 14, 39 Republican senators sent a letter to the president expressing their concern over the administration's consideration of granting to the Russians sensitive U.S. technology and "red button" authority to prevent the interception of incoming missiles headed for U.S. troops or allies. This would allow Russia to deny the United States the ability to intercept a missile Washington had determined to be a threat."
Another "WTF" Obama Foreign Policy Moment*

*As many readers have pointed out "WTF" is for "Winning The Future," President Obama's re-election campaign slogan
President Obama wants to give Russia our missile defense secrets because he believes that we can buy their friendship and cooperation with this taxpayer-funded gift. But giving military secrets and technologies to a rival or competitor like Russia is just plain dumb. You can't buy off Russia. And giving them advanced military technology will not create stability. What happens if Russia gives this technology (or sells it!) to other countries like Iran or China? After all, as Woolsey points out, Russia helped Iran with its missile and nuclear programs. Or what happens if an even more hardline leader comes to power in the Kremlin?
