Our friend Michael Ledeen spoke last night by telephone with Mark Levin on Levin’s radio show to discuss the secret trip undertaken by an emissary to Tehran on behalf of Obama during the 2008 campaign. Jim Hoft picked up on the Levin show segment here and posts the audio (below).
In the segment Michael revisits his disclosure of the trip taken by Ambassador William G. Miller to Tehran in 2008 on Obama’s behalf to assure the mullahs he was a friend of the regime. Most recently, as Jim notes, Michael wrote about the trip here (now reposted by Michael in connection with his appearance on Mark Levin’s show). In that post Michael writes:
During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.
The audio of last night’s interview discussing Miller’s trip to Tehran is below, introduced by Mark with the announcement: “Well, I have something here that I think is unbelievable.”
