"Barack Obama had a legacy earlier than any another US President. He was the first black president before he was even inaugurated."
He was nominated for the Noble Peace prize only twelve days (yes, 12) into his presidency, and awarded the Peace prize just several months later.

"The new American stance was to be chilly to friends & nicer toward enemies."

"He withdrew from Iraq, leaving it without US troops & without proper intelligence, & began to do the same from Afghanistan."

"The Peace President is starting to leave a legacy of war."

His answer may surprise you. Cantor's defeat wasn't the outcome of a failure to engage with his constituents, as other Republicans have suggested. According to Boehner, Cantor's defeat was the fault of Obama's failure to engage with Republicans:"

Iraq’s Government, Not Obama, Called Time on the U.S. Troop Presence
By Tony Karon Oct. 21, 2011
http://world.time.com/2011/10/21/iraq-not-oba...

President Barack Obama’s announcement on Friday that all 40,000 U.S. troops still in Iraq will leave the country by New Year’s Eve will, inevitably, draw howls of derision from GOP presidential hopefuls — this is, after all, early election season. But the decision to leave Iraq by that date was not actually taken by President Obama — it was taken by President George W. Bush, and by the Iraqi government.

In one of his final acts in office, President Bush in December of 2008 had signed a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) with the Iraqi government that set the clock ticking on ending the war he’d launched in March of 2003. The SOFA provided a legal basis for the presence of U.S. forces in Iraq after the United Nations Security Council mandate for the occupation mission expired at the end of 2008. But it required that all U.S. forces be gone from Iraq by January 1, 2012, unless the Iraqi government was willing to negotiate a new agreement that would extend their mandate. And as Middle East historian Juan Cole has noted,“Bush had to sign what the [Iraqi] parliament gave him or face the prospect that U.S. troops would have to leave by 31 December, 2008, something that would have been interpreted as a defeat… Bush and his generals clearly expected, however, that over time Washington would be able to wriggle out of the treaty and would find a way to keep a division or so in Iraq past that deadline.”

But ending the U.S. troop presence in Iraq was an overwhelmingly popular demand among Iraqis, and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki appears to have been unwilling to take the political risk of extending it. While he was inclined to see a small number of American soldiers stay behind to continue mentoring Iraqi forces, the likes of Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, on whose support Maliki’s ruling coalition depends, were having none of it. Even the Obama Administration’s plan to keep some 3,000 trainers behind failed because the Iraqis were unwilling to grant them the legal immunity from local prosecution that is common to SOF agreements in most countries where U.S. forces are based....

And yet are we actually surprised by any of it?
==========
The following are excerpts from the IRS manual

1.10.3.2.3 (07-08-2011)
Emails as Possible Federal Records

All federal employees and federal contractors are required by law to preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency. Records must be properly stored and preserved, available for retrieval and subject to appropriate approved disposition schedules.

The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media. Emails are records when they are:

Created or received in the transaction of agency business

Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities, or

Valuable because of the information they contain

If you create or receive email messages during the course of your daily work, you are responsible for ensuring that you manage them properly. The Treasury Department’s current email policy requires emails and attachments that meet the definition of a federal record be added to the organization’s files by PRINTING THEM (including the essential transmission data) and filing them with related paper records. If transmission and receipt data are not printed by the email system, annotate the paper copy.

Please note that MAINTAINING A COPY OF AN EMAIL OR ITS ATTACHMENTS WITHIN THE IRS EMAIL MS Outlook application does not meet the requirements of maintaining an official record. Therefore PRINT AND FILE EMAIL and its attachments if they are either permanent records or if they relate to a specific case.

1.10.3.2.4 (08-30-2012)
Emails are Subject to FOIA

The public is aware of the role emails play in agency internal operations and emails are included in a growing number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. EMAILS that are responsive to a FOIA request MUST BE RELEASED unless the information contained in the email falls into one of nine very specific categories of exemptions.…. There is no category of exemption to protect the author or the Service from embarrassment.

Emails provided in response to a FOIA must include the addressee, date and time. The address list, date and time are considered part of the record for both FOIA and record management purposes.

DO NOT DELETE A MESSAGE or attachment THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF A CONGRESSIONAL , Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), or discovery request or that is needed for litigation.

"1.10.3.2.4.1 (08-30-2012)
Emails may be subject to electronic discovery

Certain electronic records (like emails) may need to be identified and preserved when litigation is anticipated. In this case, you will be notified by your manager or Chief Counsel that relevant information must be preserved as part of the legal process."

http://www.irs.gov/irm/part1/irm_01-010-003.h...

There is no "wiggle room" for Lerner and company. But of course there is an Obama donor appointed by Eric Holder to "investigate" - I'm sure she is really motivated to "uncover the truth". And gotta love the usual "Friday afternoon information dump".

"As a candidate for president, I pledge to bring the war to an end." -- BHO

"As I promised, the rest of our troops will come home by the end of the year." -- Prseident BHO

Now that Iraq is spiraling out of control & into a full blown civil war, the president, his administration, & democrats are stating, Obama TRIED to secure a status of forces agreement, ahead of the troop withdrawal.... however, he didn't succeed. Obama & his administration were bent on saying, President Obama & his security team ended the war in Iraq. BHO being awarded the Nobel Peace, before he had earned it, was added pressure for TOTAL troop withdrawal. It was a political decision. The president & his administration got what they wanted. Now, that it's been a dismal failure, the democrats blame who? President GWB. NO surprises here.

It's our extreme left shift that destroying the US on a global level. I work for HSBC, one the largest financial institutions in the world. They were building business heavily in the US pre 2007. Since that time they have shuttered much of those businesses and are not looking to return. The economy had little to do with them leaving, it is the wealth that is leaving this country en masse and the importing of poverty and illiteracy into this country. The US would rather deny an educated and financially stable would be immigrant citizenship, instead to give a poor uneducated and their entire family citizenship laced with government entitlements.

Educated individuals around the globe no longer look to the US as the land of endless opportunity and freedom. Freedom is not free, nor is it a free for all. It comes with costs that all US citizen must pay. Currently our country has more takers than contributors and the rest if the civilized and educated World sees this.

Our media and technology are used ways that is also a driving force behind our decay as a nation. We have educated workers all around the globe that once used to wanted to live in the US, and have seen the damage to caused to family members that live here. The Americanization of mind, body and soul is now seen as bad.

You cannot blame Republicans. Those good values of that Democrats see as antiquated once drew educated and finically stable here from around the globe. That is no longer the case. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to see the parallels in this country between socialism and our continual decline.

HSBC hooked up with drug traffickers and terrorists in money laundering. They were to pay a $1.9 Billion in the US. Did they ever pay it? To HSBC that $1.9 Billion is just a small fee to do business.

GOP: Iraq disintegrating because of U.S. withdrawal
By JAKE MILLERCBS

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/gop-iraq-disinteg...

...The administration and other Democrats pushed back, though, saying the president tried mightily to secure a status-of-forces agreement ahead of the U.S withdrawal. When that push was foiled by internal Iraqi politics, they said, the president was legally required to remove U.S. forces in the absence of an agreement for them to stay.

"We offered a status of forces agreement," said former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon on "Face the Nation." "Our president, our military leadership are not going to allow our armed forces to operate in an environment like that anywhere in the world without having the appropriate protection. And that wasn't forthcoming. And, indeed, the politics in Iraq at that point wouldn't allow it to be forthcoming."

"I wouldn't lay this at Obama's feet," added former Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., on "Fox News Sunday." "Remember that the Iraqis refused to agree to a status-of-forces agreement to keep us in Iraq."

And Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., slammed Iraq's political leaders for demanding American help to fend off an insurgency after they effectively forced the United States to leave the country outright in 2011.

"They're the ones in 2011 ... that wouldn't sign, and now they're asking for our help again?" he asked on NBC. "You know, until they have the will to enter this fight ... until they have the will to fight and die for their country, we're not going to be able to give them the backbone. They're going to have to stiffen up themselves."

HSBC to Pay Record U.S. Penalty
U.K.-Based Bank Expected to Admit Money-Laundering Lapses as Part of $1.9 Billion Agreement
By DEVLIN BARRETT And EVAN PEREZ
Updated Dec. 11, 2012 7:04 a.m. ET
http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1000142...

WASHINGTON— HSBC Holdings PLC on Tuesday acknowledged that for years it ignored possible money laundering as part of a record $1.9 billion settlement with U.S. authorities that caps the bank's disastrous foray into the U.S. market.

The U.K.-based banking company is expected to forfeit nearly $1.3 billion as part of a deferred prosecution agreement, the largest-ever U.S. forfeiture for a bank, according to people briefed on the agreement between HSBC and multiple U.S. agencies. The deal includes a civil fine of more than $650 million, according to these people.

As part of the agreement, the bank will admit to violating the Bank Secrecy Act, the Trading with the Enemy Act and other U.S. laws intended to prohibit money laundering, a government official said.
