Barack Obama Treats Soldiers As Pawns

Un-friggen-believable. According to an Article by Amir Taheri, during Barack Obama's visit to Iraq, he requested Iraqi leadership delay agreement to withdraw troops until after US Elections. Camp Obama responded to the article:

But Obama's national security spokeswoman Wendy Morigi said Taheri's article bore "as much resemblance to the truth as a McCain campaign commercial."

In fact, Obama had told the Iraqis that they should not rush through a "Strategic Framework Agreement" governing the future of US forces until after President George W. Bush leaves office, she said.

Huh. I suppose if I had an Ivy League education rather than this silly little degree I hold from some school in Texas, I would be more nuanced. If I were more nuanced, I am sure I would see the difference in asking the Iraqis to delay agreement until after elections versus taking longer to reach agreement until after elections.

Regardless of which version you prefer, the lives of Soldiers were secondary to Senator Obama getting credit for the draw down over George W. Bush. Since Obama chose to say things he had no right to say, I will take the opportunity to point out what a fraud he is: During this time, Obama was telling the camera we needed to "bring them home" all the while he was scheming to leave them there. Just another amazing display of integrity from Camp Obama.
