Obama in 2007: Don’t Stay in Iraq Over Genocide… Obama in 2011: We Must Protect Innocent Libyan Civilians
In July 2007 Barack Obama made a stunning admission during a campaign stop. The democratic hopeful suggested that genocide of innocent civilians was a better option than continuing our military campaign in Iraq.
Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Thursday the United States cannot use its military to solve humanitarian problems and that preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.
But, that was back when Bush was in charge.
Libyans must be worth more to Obama than Iraqis.
