Now, this is what Barack Obama told Rolling Stone, "I said, 'We are going to end the war in Iraq, that was a mistake,' and I have done that." Can you imagine what the reaction -- what the ridicule -- would be if George W. Bush had said that?
Troops are still on the ground in Iraq and will be throughout this year, throughout most of next at best (but may, in fact, go beyond next year) and yet President Obama is claiming he has ended the Iraq War?
As C.I. points out in today's snapshot, 7 U.S. service members have died in the war Mr. Obama 'ended' since he gave his August 31st speech.
Again, if this were Bully Boy Bush, we would be going to town on him right now.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for today:
