From the NYTimes on 7/22/08:
After meeting with Mr. Maliki, Mr. Obama met with Mr. Hashimi in his spacious, ornate house in the Green Zone for about 45 minutes. Beforehand, Mr. Obama said he was “pleased with the progress taking place” in Iraq and said that it was his impression that among Iraqis there was “more optimism about what is happening.”
“You see the activity taking place, the people in the shops, the traffic on the streets, clearly there’s been an enormous improvement,” he said.
We've all heard by now that Al Maliki "endorses" NOBAMA's time table for withdrawal. Well, that's not quite the whole truth. He actually agrees with U.S. military leaders and President Bush about setting an exact date. I happen to consider 16 months to be close to a POTENTIALLY CORRECT estimate as to when the combat forces might not be needed in Iraq. We have the surge to thank for that!!!!
Here's NOBAMA stumbling around trying to put a positive spin on his "cut and run" plan for Iraq.
From ABCNews on 7/22/08:
Obama told ABC News that military leaders have "deep concerns" about a timetable that does not account for changing conditions.
"I don't think that there are deep concerns about the notion of a pullout per se," he said in the television interview. "There are deep concerns about, from their perspective, of a timetable that doesn't take into account what they anticipate might be some sort of change in conditions."
All in all this was nothing more than another photo op for the messiah. ALL the Majors were there covering that piece of shit!! John McCain goes over there and hardly even gets a mention somewhere in the middle of the paper. I think it's about time the American people boycott the liberalism of today's news media. It's no wonder that the American populace has turned into such a large group of SHEEPLE! I guess to most, if you read it enough times, it must be true.
Well, I guess I'll cut this post here and get rid of the "days since he went to Iraq" widget.
