"The US Department of Defense said Thursday it plans to sidestep a
Congressional ban to purchase 30 helicopters from Russian state-owned
defense firm Rosoboronexport, despite objections from US lawmakers.....
The contract totals $690 million, most of which would go to the Russian arms maker....." [RIANOVOSTI - Russia]
What information do the Russians have about Dear Leader Obama that they are using to blackmail him? Do you want to bet it is something about his student days activities.... travel to the USSR back when he went on his mysterious trip to the Far East? The truth about his REAL birth father? His membership in Communist organizations dating back to college days? I don't know..... but I am confident that he is being "blackmailed' (no racial offense intended). [clipper]
