In 2008, a controversy surfaced around President Obama, one that the mainstream press did everything in their power to ignore, suppress, and generally pretend was much ado about nothing.

“My preference is for peace and diplomacy, and this is one of the reasons why I’ve sent a message to Congress that now is not the time for us to impose new sanctions; now is the time for us to allow the diplomats and technical experts to do their work. We will be able to monitor and verify whether or not the interim agreement is being followed through on, and if it is not, we’ll be in a strong position to respond.
