Iraq was NEVER Bush's war. The plan started under Clinton, from the intelligence gathered then. If Bush lied, Clinton and most of the Democratic leadership lied about WMDs.

Now, Obama is making plans to cut and run in Afghanistan, after promising to get bin Laden in the election campaign. Reversal is the one consistent theme of his administration.

What does Iraq have to do with Afganistan? Did we post for the sake of it? We aren’t pulling out if Petraeus has anything to do with it. Operation Dragon just started.

“What does Iraq have to do with Afganistan?”

That was Obama’s line in the presidential campaign.

Haven’t you been watching Woodward’s interviews on his latest Obama book? According to Woodward the Joint Chiefs committed to being “on board” with O’s exit strategy.

When we were on the road to Baghdad, Hillary Clinton reminded the world on one of Timmy Russert's shows that it has, for a long time, been the "position of the Democratic Party to remove Saddam".

They were going to claim a victory....but...

Shortly after, when things got a little tough, the Dems reversed themselves and opted for the position of using an undefined word...."quagmire"
