And you have the gall to accuse me of Obama blinders?<quoted text>
Nice try. The plan was never to remove all American troops from Iraq, until obama stumbled in with his inexperience. We gone, al-qaida and the Iranians have filled the void.
The sad thing is, President Bush had that battle won.
The plan Bush signed called for removal of American troops at the end of '11. The HOPE was that a continued American presence in Iraq could be negotiated before the expiration of the best agreement Bush could get, but there was never much of a chance of that based on Iraqi politics.
