Obama’s Doubletalk on Ending Iraq War
Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 12, 2014
Barack Obama ran for his first term promising to end the war in Iraq. After becoming president Obama often bragged about fulfilling that promise. Unfortunately, the President’s often repeated claim was false.
Six years after Obama took office it has become more apparent what he meant by “Hope and Change”. He would hope for events to make positive changes in the country and world. Unfortunately, hope is not a plan.
While President Obama did indeed pull US troops out of Iraq and called the war over, wars are between at least two parties. They cannot end unilaterally. The war in Iraq continues. While it was started by Bush, it is now Obama’s war.
