Barack: War ain't so bad

By Michael J. Smith on Tuesday July 15, 2008 09:37 AM

From the NY Daily News:
Barack Obama purges Web site critique of surge in Iraq WASHINGTON - Barack Obama's campaign scrubbed his presidential Web site over the weekend to remove criticism of the U.S. troop "surge" in Iraq, the Daily News has learned.....

"The surge is not working," Obama's old plan stated, citing a lack of Iraqi political cooperation but crediting Sunni sheiks - not U.S. military muscle - for quelling violence ....

Obama's campaign posted a new Iraq plan Sunday night, which cites an "improved security situation"....

It praises G.I.s' "hard work, improved counterinsurgency tactics and enormous sacrifice."

Has anybody else noticed this word "counterinsurgency" showing up a lot lately on the lips of Democrats? Hell of an ominous sign for those of us who remember the Phoenix Program.

Nicholas Hart:

Obomba is headed to Iraq to meet Petraeus, the author of the surge. It wouldn't be very nice of Obomba to have criticisms of his host published on his website. Besides, since the surge is "working" what's the hurry for pulling out of Iraq?

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
