Here is what Barack Obama said last night:
It's enough to say that for the next six years, the Iraq war drew the dominant share of our troops, our resources, our diplomacy, and our national attention -- and that the decision to go into Iraq caused substantial rifts between America and much of the world.
Though filled with other assertions and outright lies that Bush dropped the ball in Afghanistan, Obama was rather respectful.That was yesterday. My, my how 24 hours makes a difference.Sent from Barack Obama's campaign team at barackobama.com, I got this note from Joe Biden tonight about the Obama policy in Afghanistan:
It's a clean break from the failed Afghanistan policy of the Bush administration, and a new, focused strategy that can succeed.
Graceless, tasteless, and an outright lie.By the way, wasn't it Barack Obama who chaired the Senate's sub-committee dealing with the Afghan War from 2006-2008? And how many hearings did he have on the matter? If you answered zero, you would be correct.
