President Obama Laughs with Aides on Air Force One

And this is a revelation? everyone knew they were lying about everything. That’s what Ovama does. The republicans knew as well and did nothing to stop it. It’s the same story from the same corrupt town and and will lead to a nuclear exchange that will kill 10s of thousands.

… Those readers who found Jeffrey Goldberg’s picture of Obama in his March Atlantic profile refreshing for the president’s willingness to insult American allies publicly will be similarly cheered here by Rhodes’s boast of deceiving American citizens, lawmakers, and allies over the Iran deal. Conversely, those who believe Obama risked American interests to take a cheap shot at allies from the pedestal of the Oval Office will be appalled to see Rhodes dancing in the end zone to celebrate the well-packaged misdirections and even lies—what Rhodes and others call a “narrative”—that won Obama his signature foreign policy initiative.

As Rhodes admits, it’s not that hard to shape the narrative. “All these newspapers used to have foreign bureaus,” Rhodes said. “Now they don’t. They call us to explain to them what’s happening in Moscow and Cairo. Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”

In Rhodes’s “narrative” about the Iran deal, negotiations started when the ostensibly moderate Hassan Rouhani was elected president, providing an opening for the administration to reach out in friendship. In reality, as Samuels gets administration officials to admit, negotiations began when “hardliner” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was still president. It was Rhodes who framed the Iran deal as a choice between peace and war, and it was Rhodes who set up a messaging unit to sell the deal that created an “echo chamber” in the press. “[Al Monitor reporter] Laura Rozen was my RSS feed,” says Tanya Somanader, the 31-year-old who managed @TheIranDeal twitter feed. “She would just find everything and retweet it.”

    Congress is as responsible for what has happened to America as is Obama.

    I think his comment about reporter’s inexperience is spin, covering for why wasn’t WH deception reported.

    Adam Kredo wrote a Nov. 2013 column relative to Ms. Rozen. She was a member of Journolist and in 2008 proposed blacklisting conservative foreign policy experts. Al Monitor is a Wash. DC based electronic media org. established in 2012 focused on the Middle East. Founded by Jamal Daniel, Syrian born, Lebanon raised investment millionaire based in Houston. Wonder if he knows any Texas Republicans. Mr. Daniel also founded in 2011, The Levant Foundation. Supposedly focuses on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam connections in the Levant. Sounds Hope and Changey.
