The US and Hezbollah are in secret indirect talks managed by London dealing with the fight against Al-Qaida, regional stability and other Lebanese political issues.
Except that Hezbollah is fighting Al Qaeda in Syria. While Obama is backing the Sunni side, which includes Al Qaeda.
The discussions “are aimed at keeping tabs on the changes in the region and the world, and prepare for the upcoming return of Iran to the international community,” according to diplomatic sources in Washington.
So not only is Obama legitimizing Iran’s nuclear weapons programs, but he’s also legitimizing one of the world’s nastiest terrorist groups… that was responsible for the 1983 Beirut bombing which killed 220 marines.
Because the US, unlike the UK, recognizes both the political and military wings of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and refuses to distinguish between them, US officials cannot legally meet with any member of the party. But according to the sources, the US is willing to hear the views of the party and “warm up to a direct relationship in the future.”
Just wait till Obama and Nasrallah go to a Beirut couscous joint on their first date.
