    Libs are whooping and wailing over the 47 GOP senators who sent a letter to Iran warning them that any agreement Obama negotiates must go through them first.

    Accusations of “treason” and “un-American” are flying around.

    But a few years ago, a U.S. Senator did something much more nefarious.

    While George W. Bush was trying to negotiate a drawdown of our military presence in Iraq back in 2008, a Senator sent a delegation to Baghdad and met privately with Iraqi officials, urging them to reject any of President Bush’s overtures, saying the Bush Administration was in a “state of weakness and political confusion.”

    That senator? Now-President Barack Obama.
    A New York Post article from 2008 details how adamant Obama was that Bush and his team were weak and that the Iraqis should wait until a new administration stepped in (him, presumably) to re-start negotiations.

    But that’s the past, right? Everyone from Harry Reid to Joe Biden are on the attack. “Fuming,” as they say. “In thirty-six years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which Senators wrote directly to advise another country,” Biden said.

    I would say so for a number of different reasons!

    Neither action reaches the threshold for treason.
