From the drudge report snippet:
RUSSIA BRUSHES OFF OBAMA: NO 'HAGGLING'This is showing that Russia brushed off Obama, or is this evidence that he brushed off the question asked from a reporter? I guess whether or not haggling was part of the letter is crucial information here.'Haggling,' however, was not 'productive,' Medvedev said.
Obama: Letter to Moscow Addressed Missile Shield, Did Not Offer Trade-Off - First 100 Days of Presidency - Politics FOXNews.comThe Kremlin also disputed talk of any trade-off in the letter. In Moscow, a Kremlin source told FOX News there was no quid pro quo on Iran and missile defense in the letter, but said the correspondence was considered very positive and contained a number of initiatives.
A bit of sensationalism for an attention grabbing headline using unsubstantiated evidence?? Or are the Kremlin and White House both lying over the contents of the letter??
We will never know for sure unless we see the letter I suppose, but I do not put much credibility in the Drudge piece, nor the initial NY Times piece based on 1 anonymous source either.
Either way, I do not construe any of Medved's comments from the Drudge link as "Brushing off Obama" that is solely the creation of whoever wrote the headline.
