Back to Iraq

Back to Iraq

The President has, in the past, said some things about the situation in Iraq and some of the players that he’s had to take back recently (or at least ignore). Now, we all know that Presidents can’t be perfect prognosticators. They have aids that specialize in different areas who try to anticipate issues before they get out of hand. But there is someone that perhaps President Obama should’ve hired who made a prediction back in 2007.

Obama has proclaimed over and over, over the course of years, about how he promised to end the war in Iraq, and he did. The question is, was it a good promise to make?

And I ask the question again; where’s the anti-war crowd? They’ve been conspicuously absent while a Democrat has been in the White House. What do they think about this new “surge”, so to speak? Their silence speaks volumes.
