, I question Sen Obama’s knowledge base and integrity when he speaks to Americans about anything dealing with ‘security gaps’
You can tell a lot about what kind of president someone will be by the people he/she surrounds themself with.

I question the motives and the capabilities of some of Sen Obama’s foreign policy advisors including Dr Susan Rice and Zbigniew Brzezinski (ZB).

Dr Susan Rice- a 1986 Stanford graduate and Rhodes scholar with a doctorate from Oxford University, According to Richard Miniter, in his book “Losing Bin Laden”, wasn’t she a major opponent of accepting Sudan’s offer to turn over Osama Bin Laden
during 1996 to 1997?(During that time Dr Rice was the Clinton administration’s Secretary of State for African Affairs and she was a former assistant National Security Advisor under Sandy Berger.) Wasn’t it her personal beliefs on Sudan’s credibility that led her to do this? Didn’t her opinion to reject Sudan’s offer to turn over Osama Bin Laden overrule the opinion of Tim Carney- who was, at the time, ambassador to Sudan?
We still remember what happened on 9/11. Why has this not been brought up for public discussion

Dr Rice- An example of her good judgment? You decide.

Zbigniew Brzezinski- people around the world want to bring him –plus Henry Kissenger-up on war criminal charges for the global atrocities committed-stemming from their advice to president(s) they were working for.

ZB has written books on why the US should seek control of Iran if US wants to maintain its global primacy in Euroasia(i.e. oil).

Although Sen Obama (and Sen McCain) has not enorsed Kyl-Lieberman ammendment, I am confused about his position on using pre-emptive force against Iran. He has been flip-flopping during past year-see timeline. Sen Clinton voted for Kyl-Lieberman Amendment, which designates the Iranian National Guard as a terrorist organization. She has been accused of doing this to maintain support of Jewish voters-who fear Iran as a threat. Vote as follows:76 yeas, 22 nays, 2 not voting- Obama, McCain. Sen Obama has been endorsed by ZB- who has written several books & articles in support of the US" taking control of Iran. Sen. Obama took on ZB as a foreign advisor last year after ZB endorsed him for president. I am not sure what Sen. Obama"s position is with regards to war with Iran.Why has this not been brought up for public discussion?

ZB once supported the creation and U.S support of Islamic forces in Afghanistan 1979-1980 (forces that were ultimately led by Osama Bin Laden) in effort to combat the communist Russians.
Z.- Brzezinski An example of his good judgment? You decide.
