Looks like Barack Obama has caught a bad case of Kerry-itis. He said it before he didn't say it.
OBAMA: And if George Bush doesn’t listen, then we’re going to make him listen because it’s time for us to bring our young people home.
OBAMA: Well, first of all, I don’t know anybody who’s been talking about packing up and going home.
If you listen to the video his actual plan for Iraq is to have American troops "over the horizon". Whether this shows his approval for the Okinawa plan of Murtha is not yet clear.
How he calculates that American forces over the horizon from Iraq will help stabilise the country when we're having a damnably hard time doing that while troops are in the country is unexplained.
And just why is it okay to have American troops in Afghanistan where the Taliban and Al Qaeda are possibly coming back to strength? If he sees the need to fight them and stop them there, then why is he proposing exactly the opposite strategy in Iraq?
It makes no sense whatsoever.
