From the Obama website:
Diplomacy: Obama is the only major candidate who supports tough, direct presidential diplomacy with Iran without preconditions.
From Henry Kissinger: Henry Kissinger is "upset" with Obama for distorting his views!From the Weekly Standard Blog:
Henry Kissinger believes Barack Obama misstated his views on diplomacy with US adversaries and is not happy about being mischaracterized. He says: "Senator McCain is right. I would not recommend the next President of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the Presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Senator John McCain. We do not agree on everything, but we do agree that any negotiations with Iran must be geared to reality."
UPDATE on more:
Obama bragged about supporting missile defense. Wrong! He has not...
Barack Obama: "I Will Cut Investments In Unproven Missile Defense Systems."
Obama: "I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems, and I will institute an independent defense priorities board to ensure that the quadrennial defense review is not used to justify unnecessary spending." (Barack Obama, Caucus4Priorities Response, 10/22/07)
Barack Obama Said He Doesn't Agree With Missile Defense. "I, for example, don't agree with a missile defense system." (WTTW11's "Chicago Tonight," 1/17/01)
"In Addition, If Elected, Obama May Well Be The Only Senator In The United States Who Is Pledged To Cut U.S. Missile Defense System Research By As Much As $10 Billion." (Thomas Roeser, Op-Ed, "Think Kerry Is Liberal? Get A Load Of Obama," Chicago Sun-Times, 3/20/04)

UPDATE: "I wanted him to know my son's name when he is Commander and Chief", Mrs Jopek, mother of dead son on the bracelet that Obama wears...."Sen. Obama treated that bracelet as a mere prop for a piece of political theater — and when he finally received what he recognized as a cue to perform, Sen. Obama still couldn't even deliver his intended line without a prompt." (Bednar).
UPDATE: Speaking on a Wisconsin Public Radio show a few months ago, Brian Jopek, father of Ryan Jopek who lost his life to a roadside bomb in 2006, said his wife was surprised that Obama was still wearing the bracelet even after the family told him to take it off . (Newsbusters)
