Obama's Iraq Strategy:Losing

The new Media darling Barak Obama offers a message of hope every where he goes, except on winning in Iraq, says Tom Donnelly:

...when it comes to winning in the war in Iraq, Obama’s message has
been and remains one of relentless despair; in that same South Carolina speech,
he lamented "a war that should never have been authorized and never been waged."
The Iraq "surge," he still insists, "has failed," and why we need to begin "not
just talking to our friends but talking to our enemies, like Iran and Syria, to
try to stabilize the situation there" by an American withdrawal. Indeed, Obama
was among those who believed the surge a failure even before it began: he voted
in March 2007 to remove all U.S. combat forces within a year.
Three simple
words: No. We. Can’t.

I guess the message of change doesn't involve the brave men and women in our armed forces, who sacrificed so much to bring freedom to those who've never known democracy. This isn't Kennedy but Carter.
