President Obama’s mother met his father in Russian class in college. I think that affinity for Russia passed onto the President.
Back in April, Harvey Miller wrote a short piece about Obama sharing our defense secrets to the Russians. You can read it here for background information.
Basically, getting nothing in return, and because Putin is so deserving, Obama, declared in mid-March that he would “…provide the Russians with detailed technical information about the anti-missile systems he plans to base in Eastern Europe…”
There is more –
- He has refused to keep secret the technical data on the U.S Standard Missile-3, as called for in the 2012 defense authorization bill.
- Obama will not pledge to keep American missile technology from China, North Korea and Iran, as it would “…interfere with [his] constitutional authority to conduct foreign affairs…”
- Obama will provide Russia information on every Trident missile supplied to Great Britain as part of an arms control deal signed with Russian President Medvedev.
- Leaked cables show that the US will now provide Russia with ALL serial numbers of Trident missiles transferred to Britain.
The Republicans became deeply concerned when they heard Obama’s hot mic conversation with Medvedev.

No, it’s not a joke, we need a bill to keep our President from betraying our state secrets to the ally that hates us – Russia.

Brooks also said the United States should be especially wary of sharing anything with Russia, in light of comments from Russia’s military threatening the nation if it participates in a missile defense system in Europe.
“If Russia’s defense staff is wiling to blatantly threaten the United States, why should the United States hand them the keys to technology that gives America’s war fighter a decided advantage?” he asked…
