Reporting on Obama's Plans to Share Defense Secrets
I was very disturbed by Dick Morris' video post today -- He titled it "Obama Gives Defense Secrets to our Enemies!".
The whole thought of this happening seems entirely ludicrous and deplorable. I respect Dick Morris but wondered if he was misinformed in some way?
So I did some research and it was hard to really find much on the subject when you do a Google News search.
The first news result came from a website that I never heard of and is hardly very authoritative. This is what the Greeley Gazette reported on the issue.
The Washington times reported several weeks ago that U.S. officials were planning to provide Moscow with the data from the SM-3. The SM-3 is part of America’s missile defense program that was begun under President Ronald Reagan.
Finally some specifics.
So when I did a search for Washington Times and missle secrets, I found this article on Fox News written by Bill Gertz of the Washington Times, January 5, 2012.
The article title is called "RED SCARE: Obama Plans to Share Nuke Secrets with Russia" and has over 100K facebook likes and 295 tweets but comments for the page are locked.
I also found a report on the Examiner from January 5, 2012. And they have a quote from Obama but it does not reveal much. It is not incriminating.
Joel B. Pollack of Big Peace notes:
The reporting of this issue is very thin at best. If that truly is the case which it appears to be, why? Why are so few news organizations willing to report on this issue? Is it a non-issue? And the only one authoritative media source reporting on the issue (Fox) has blocked comments from their page.
Now you will find stories about this topic on other websites but all they do is quote the original Washington Times story (like I have).
Now I ask. What is going on? Is this just a non-issue? Are we making a mountain out of a mole hill? I don't know but I hope that it becomes more publicly known now that Dick Morris is reporting on it.
Now I beg of all of you to read all of the references I posted on this page and also to go back to Facebook and share this article with your friends. Not because we acknowledge these as fact but because we want more awareness on the issue.
