My, my, my, isn’t this interesting:
Today the corrupt media rejoiced in the news that President Obama will withdrawal troops from Iraq.
This is despite the fact that David Petraeus already announced this plan back in 2007.
Because democrats and the media were so focused on discrediting Petraeus back in 2007, they ignored his drawdown plans during his progress report to Congress.
The media rejoiced today in Obama’s plans to withdraw troops from Iraq.
The AP reported:
A total of 12,000 American and 4,000 British troops will leave Iraq by September, the U.S. military said Sunday, hours after a suicide bomber killed 32 people at the entrance of Baghdad’s main police academy.
…Maj. Gen. David Perkins said the troop withdrawals will reduce U.S. combat power from 14 brigades to 12 along with some supporting units. The U.S. also plans to turn over 74 facilities and areas under its control to the Iraqis by the end of March as part of the drawdown.
President Barack Obama has decided to remove all combat troops by the end of August 2010 with the remaining forces leaving by the end of 2011. The 4,000 British troops due to leave are the last British soldiers in Iraq.
That 12,000 is right in line with what the generals have been saying all along.
Instead, our troops will come home victorious.
No wonder the troops aren’t impressed with the Cut & Runner in Chief.
But, it gets better:
Did Obama Play Politics With Troop Deployments?
Based on this post from Greyhawk, it sure looks like it.
One brigade diverted from Iraq to Afghanistan to great public fanfare, meanwhile another brigade is quietly sent to Iraq in it’s place. All while months of training and vital skills are wasted.
Now imagine if Bush had done this. Of course you can’t because it’s simply unimaginable that he would have done this.
I guess the only hope and change that Obama brings as the successor to George W. Bush is that he isn’t afraid to lie about his troop orders.
Pretty neat-o, huh?
There’s my two cents.
