Candidate Obama specifically talked about concentrating on Afghanistan and even going into Pakistan during the 08 campaign season. He described Iraq as "the wrong war" or a "dumb war", but never said he wouldn't wage or escalate war...
This is what he said he would do.
what the problem is?
P.S. - did anybody notice that as soon as the Prez said the troops would draw down in x number of months, HIllary Clinton and some other hi profiles went on the talk show rounds to say "errr,,, not so much"????
