So talks with Hamas are not acceptable to Obama, BUT...

A sit down "tea" with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran (Iran the nation that funds and supports Hamas) is totally acceptable to him! But, I guess that's understandable since Ahmadinejad prefers to support Obama!

Earlier in March, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the Spanish El Pais newspaper that the real circles of power in America would not allow Senator Barack Obama to enter the White House, adding that he would have no problems if the junior senator from Illinois were to be elected.
But back to the main story...Obama decided today to get "tough" on the advisors he's surrounded himself with by cutting one of them lose...(hmm...seems to me, he's not a very good judge of character, huh? His "friends" include the "good" reverend Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn founders of the Underground Weatherman, Tony Rezko...)

Informal Obama adviser steps aside over Hamas talks

From NBC's Andrea Mitchell

One of the Obama campaign's informal Middle East advisers, Robert Malley, confirms to NBC NEWS that he has resigned from any role in the campaign because critics have tried to make an issue of his meetings with Hamas. The Times of London called him about it this morning, and has posted a story online. As a result, he called Obama's campaign today and took himself out of any future role.

Malley's paid job is with the International Crisis Group, which, he says, requires him to meet with Hamas and others. Malley worked for six and a half years at the Clinton National Security Council under Tony Lake and Sandy Berger. Lake is now one of Obama's top foreign policy advisors.

Speaking to NBC NEWS, Malley said, "I decided based on the fact that this was coming a distraction that it was best that I remove myself from any association with the campaign."

Malley added, "My job with the International Crisis Group is to meet with all sorts of savory and unsavory people and report on what they say. I've never denied whom I meet with; that's what I do."
