Of Course… Obama Says McCain's Attack On His Decision to Cut & Run From Iraq Was "Unfortunate"


Only the most intellectually dishonest person would disagree with that statement. Maybe that is why Obama disagrees that he surrendered Iraq.

This week Obama said the surge, which was a massive success, was a bad strategy.


This week he even had the audacity to declare that his policy of fleeing the battle may have brought the same results to Iraq as the troop surge.
That’s not just arrogant. It doesn’t just belittle the troops. It’s insane.

Today Brian Williams from NBC News asked Obama Obama about his decision to flee Iraq.
Williams asked him about Senator McCain’s attack on his decision to surrender Iraq to the terrorists:

“This is a clear choice that the American people have. I had the courage and the judgment to say I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war. It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.”

With McCain’s statement in mind, pay attention to how Obama twists the question:

Obama answers- “It’s unfortunate… For him to suggest that somehow I’m less concerned about the safety of my wife and daughter, than he is, I think was, uh, unfortunate”
Umm. It’s unfortunate that Obama had to twist what McCain said.

What’s unfortunate is Obama’s decision to give up on the US military during war. It’s unfortunate that Obama believed that “preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.” It’s unfortunate that Obama said that ethnic cleansing was the reason that violence went down. It’s unfortunate that he can’t give the troops, General Petraeus and President Bush credit for the miracle turnaround in Iraq. It’s unfortunate that he has to lie about his previous statements on supporting the surge. It’s unfortunate that he has to twist McCain’s words.

It’s unfortunate that he cannot admit that he was wrong and that the surge was a great success.
That’s what’s unfortunate.
