US casualty rate in Afghanistan has increased five-fold under Obama.

Obama says he will pressure Pakistan.

Obama announces that, “The tide of war is receding.”

Obama strawman: Some would have us react militarily to every global conflict.

Obama, “We will support democratic movements across the Arab world.” (except Syria)
