Last Friday February 27,2009; President Barack Obama announces his plans withdraw troops from Iraq. Obama at Camp LeJuene, NC. , the President announces troops will be home by August 31,2010 except a small contingent of troops between 30,000-50,000 will remain in country providing training, and support for the Iraqi Armed Forces and Police.
While he praises the troops, he refuses to acknowleges victory. A victory created by General Petraeus the creator of the surge strategy. At least Mr. President say we won the war in Iraq. He has no trouble telling the Republicans that He won the election and he is the president in the stimilus fight. But refusing to say we won even though he was opposed the war is ridiculous. Obama is the Commander-In-Chief should the ovbious that we won the war. I wonder will he claim victory in Afganistan. We’ll see. But I doubt it.
