Obama’s Talk with Iraqi Foreign Minister (Obama’s version)
From the article at your link:
“I emphasized to him how encouraged I was by the reductions in violence in Iraq, but also insisted that it is important for us to begin the process of withdrawing U.S. troops, making clear that we have no interest in permanent bases in Iraq,” the senator said. “I gave him an assurance that should we be elected, an Obama administration will make sure that we continue with the progress that’s been made in Iraq, that we won’t act precipitously, but that we will move to end U.S. combat forces in Iraq in a manner that’s as careful as we were careless getting in.”
So he is saying to the Iraqi government “We are not interested in permanent bases.” By his own admission, he is bargaining with governments in a war!?!?! Did he truly think his path was paved straight to the White House?
hang him high
