Now Obama is scrubbing his Iraq webpage!
The New York Daily News reported:

Barack Obama’s campaign scrubbed his presidential Web site over the weekend to remove criticism of the U.S. troop “surge” in Iraq, the Daily News has learned.

The presumed Democratic nominee replaced his Iraq issue Web page, which had described the surge as a “problem” that had barely reduced violence.

“The surge is not working,” Obama’s old plan stated, citing a lack of Iraqi political cooperation but crediting Sunni sheiks – not U.S. military muscle – for quelling violence in Anbar Province.

The News reported Sunday that insurgent attacks have fallen to the fewest since March 2004.

Obama’s campaign posted a new Iraq plan Sunday night, which cites an “improved security situation” paid for with the blood of U.S. troops since the surge began in February 2007.

It praises G.I.s’ “hard work, improved counterinsurgency tactics and enormous sacrifice.”

Campaign aide Wendy Morigi said Obama is “not softening his criticism of the surge. We regularly update the Web site to reflect changes in current events.”

Here is Obama’s website before the scrubbing this weekend:

This previous page said: “The goal of the surge was to create space for Iraq’s political leaders to reach an agreement to end Iraq’s civil war.”


And, here is Obama’s current webpage on Iraq and the surge:

And, nowVoila!– *poof* —No more civil war!

That’s Barack Obama’s special way of congratulating the troops for the phenomenal progress in Iraq.
How weak.

Of course, his current webpage is still wrong and outdated. Iraq has achieved 15 of 18 benchmarks and violent attacks are down by 90% over last year.

UPDATE: The Campaign Spot has more glaring contradictions from Obama- After months of denying the surge would work or was working… He now says he “had no doubt that we would see a reduction of violence.”
