It hasn’t even been 4 weeks since Obama’s election and while CNN is now declaring actions in Iraq as humanitarian missions, Friedman at the NYT is trying to figure out a way for Obama and the Democrats to claim victory in Iraq, a mission they have opposed every step of the way and which is already coming to a successful conclusion. Simply incredible. Do they really think we’re that dumb?
If [Obama] can pull this off, and help that decent Iraq take root, Obama and the Democrats could not only end the Iraq war but salvage something positive from it. Nothing would do more to enhance the Democratic Party’s national security credentials than that.
