In June 2007 the heartless Junior Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, told an audience of supporters that, “Preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.”
Today the genocide supporter met with the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki at the White House.

President Obama and Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki met (briefly) with reporters today after their meeting at the White House.
Not much news. Bottom line: Obama said he’s pleased with the progress that Iraq security forces have made, and he expects to have all U.S. combat forces out of Iraq next year as scheduled.
Maliki agreed and said he is looking for U.S. economic help and its support for ending U.N. sanctions that remain from the Saddam Hussein years.
Fortunately, the genocide supporter did not get his way.
Thanks to the Bush Surge the War in Iraq was won, not lost.
