Why do the Russians know more about Obama's agenda than America's citizens?

The administration can't be too fond of ABC News' Jake Tapper. Tapper reported early today that President Obama was caught on an open microphone telling Russian President Medvedev that once he's reelected, he won't have to bother with those pesky Americans who are worried about sharing missile defense secrets.

President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

Senior GOP officials are rightfully concerned, given that missile defense is a critical element of U.S. national security.

“If there was any doubt how dangerous Barack Obama would be for America’s security in a second term, the president put all uncertainty to rest today,” said the source, who closely tracks foreign policy matters. “The president just told us that he is itching to hand over America’s most secret missile defense data to a country that is arming Syria and fueling Iran’s Bushehr reactor—and he would do it today but for his re-election concerns. With no political constraints in a second term, who knows what Obama will do.”

The adviser also said Obama’s remarks should cause concern among pro-Israel forces in America.

If this is what the president’s promising the Russians on missile defense, God only knows what he’s promising Arab leaders about Israel,” noted the souce. “If you think Barack Obama was bad for Israel in term one, put your seatbelt on and get ready for term two.”

Rep. Michael Turner, Chairman of a House Armed Services Subcommittee, is seriously ticked off and he said as much in a letter to the president that has undertones of a threat laced within it.

As you know, in the FY12 National Defense Authorization Act, Congress enacted, and you signed into law, a provision constraining your ability to share classified U.S. missile defense information with the Russian Federation. Congress took this step because it was clear based on official testimony and Administration comments in the press that classified information about U.S. missile defenses, including hit-to-kill technology and velocity at burnout information, may be on the table as negotiating leverage for your reset with Russia. Despite signing the FY12 defense authorization legislation into law, you then issued a signing statement signaling that you may treat that provision protecting U.S. missile defense information as non-binding. This morning’s comments, on top of that action, suggests that you and your administration have plans for U.S. missile defenses that you believe will not stand up to electoral scrutiny.

Congress has made exquisitely clear to your Administration and to other nations that it will block all attempts to weaken U.S. missile defenses. As the Chairman of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, which authorizes U.S. missile defense and nuclear weapons policy, I want to make perfectly clear that my colleagues and I will not allow any attempts to trade missile defense of the United States to Russia or any other country.

Once again, I've been forced to update President Barack Obama's Complete List of Historic Firsts to include this missive:

"First President to Openly Defy a Congressional Order Not To Share Sensitive Nuclear Defense Secrets With the Russian Government.."

He should be the first president to loose his security clearance

"High crimes and misdemeanors" yet?

@Bones: In a sane world, he would never have gotten a security clearance in the first place. With his background, he wouldn't be permitted to mow the lawn at the NSA or CIA.

With his 'documentation' he would not even be able to get a passport, much less a security clearance of any kind. Hell, he would not be able to get a job as a seasonal 'envelope opener' at the IRS.

It is funny but you can buy better 'documentation' at a flea market in Austin then what he has that we know of. At least they are smart enough to djinn up a SSI number with a prefix that would match his alleged 'birthplace' state.

I suspect that, in the end, what will be found out about this man will confirm everything that has already been said that the Democrats and the MSM have tried to shut down as 'crazy conspiracy theories'. One thing to always remember is that Nancy Pelosi has alot to lose in all this, too. She is the one who signed his certification to be a candidate for President. In case you wondered why they kept her as minority leader evwen though the Dem congresscritters did not want her now you know why. She has one of Obama's biggest skeletons locked up in her closet
