A quick click over to CNN led me to this headline - I am not kidding - Obama says he's 'been very consistent' on Iraq
I doublechecked and realized I was indeed on CNN and not on the Onion.
Consistently defeatist, wrongheaded and obtuse, perhaps.
"The belief that we have a national security interest in making sure Iraq is secure, I've been saying consistently,"
Huh. See, I pay pretty close attention, and that's not what I have taken away from the Senator's statements.
Obama reiterated his commitment to his withdraw plan again. “I will call my joint chiefs of staff and give them an assignment and that is to end the war,” he said.
Well, ok. 'Cause running on a promise to prioritize an immediate end to our activities in Iraq doesn't sound like the plan of a man who believes we have a national security interest in making sure Iraq is secure. But maybe I missed something, being just an old dumb sergeant and all.
