The President on Iraq:
Deja Vu All over Again

Mar 23, 2009

The president said, “As this transition in our mission takes place, our troops will focus on a more limited set of tasks, including counter-terrorism operations, and training, equipping and supporting Iraqi forces.”

That was George W. Bush on September 13, 2007.

But as we know, Barack Obama, promising big changes in Iraq policies, was elected.

Here’s what Barrack Obama had to say on February 27, 2009: “Our mission will change from combat to supporting the Iraqi government and its security forces, training, equipping and advising Iraqi security forces, conducting counter-terrorism missions.”

Just what kind of change is this? Sounds like... none at all.
