Barack Looked at Iraq Surge to Plan Afghan Strategy– The One He Was Against & Said Failed

In 2007 both Barack Obama and Joe Biden continually spoke out against the Bush Surge of troops in Iraq.

From the video: Speaking at Camp Lejeune on February 27, 2009, Barack Obama talked about the success of our efforts in Iraq which he and the Democratic Party tried to undermine on a daily basis.

And donā€™t forget that in 2007 Barack Obama endorsed genocide rather than keep US troops in Iraq.

But today his top general said he looked at the successful Iraq Surge to plan his Afghanistan strategy.
FOX News reported:

President Obama did acknowledge the success of the surge in Iraq and used some of its lessons to develop a plan in Afghanistan, the head of Central Command said Sunday.

President Obama did acknowledge the success of the surge in Iraq and used some of its lessons to develop a plan in Afghanistan, the head of Central Command said Sunday.

Gen. David Petraeus, who is in charge of military operations throughout the Middle East and Central Asia ā€” regions containing Iraq and Afghanistan ā€” said the president asked him how troops worked to secure the population and achieve cooperation with various Iraqi factions, and held several lengthy sessions to review the principles that could be applied in Afghanistan.

During his presidential campaign, Obama frequently discussed how he strongly opposed the war in Iraq and the surge of 2007.

So does that mean Obama will apologize to Bush and the troops now?
