About Obama Withdrawing From Iraq
If the U.S. “news” media was truly a news media and doing its job, this would be on every so-called journalist’s lips today, especially when interviewing Republicans who seem to think the war was going great until Obama became president in 2003 and immediately screwed it up. (If you get the misinformation in that sentence you get a round of applause.)
President Obama’s speech formally declaring that the last 43,000 U.S. troops will leave Iraq by the end of the year was designed to mask an unpleasant truth: The troops aren’t being withdrawn because the U.S. wants them out. They’re leaving because the Iraqi government refused to let them stay.
