What has been the mantra of Obama during this election campaign? Come on, say it with me.
GET OUT OF IRAQ NOW! GET OUT OF IRAQ NOW!
He even faced off with his fellow [strike]socialists[/strike] [strike]Democrups [/strike] Democrats claiming that Sen Clinton's plan for Iraq was fool-hardy and unsatisfactory due to the criminal and illegal nature of the war on terror campaign in Iraq.
But now, it seems, that as a senator, he has used his office to go over the head of the President of the US to dictate international policy and place himself in the seat of the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.
Click on to read below the fold to see how despicable and traitorous this man really is. (BTW.. He claims he want to fix global poverty and bemoans America's economy all the while accepting $30,000 a plate benefits from Hollywood liberals and loony leftists.)
From NY Post:
WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.
According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.
"He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington," Zebari said in an interview.
Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops - and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its "state of weakness and political confusion."
