Confirmation: Obama Did Violate the Logan Act By Meddling in Iraq

I previously noted that Obama may have violated the Logan Act by trying to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay the withdrawal of US troops until after Bush had left office. In purporting to refute the charge, the Obama camp actually confirmed it by issuing a statement acknowledging that Obama had in fact asked the Iraqi leadership to not "rush through" a withdrawal until Bush left office. Well, now it appears there is additional confirmation of Obama's illegal actions. As Pete Hegseth notes in the National Review:

Taheri’s column comports with second-hand reports I’ve received from those with access to top U.S. decision-makers in Iraq. Rather than use his touch-down trip to Baghdad to fact-find and consult with senior Iraqi and American officials, Sen. Obama made a concerted effort to push his post–Bush administration agenda, undermining — in word and deed — current diplomatic efforts in Iraq.

Obama constantly assures us that he loves his country as much as McCain. Well, McCain took torture for five years for the USA, whereas Obama is attempting to play politics with our national security. You tell me which candidate loves his country more.

Did Reagan's advisors violate the Logan Act when they negotiated with Iran to delay the release of the hostages until after the November 1980 election?

If that were the case, yes. But that has never been proven.
