"“Changing the definition of success to stay the course with the wrong
policy is the wrong course for our troops and our national security. The time to
end the surge and to start bringing our troops home is now – not six months from
now. The Iraqi government is not achieving the political progress that was the
stated purpose of the surge, and in key areas has gone backwards. Our military
cannot sustain its current deployments without crippling our ability to respond
to contingencies around the world. It’s time for a change of direction that
brings our troops home, applies real pressure on the Iraqis to act, surges our
diplomacy, and addresses Iraq’s urgent humanitarian crisis. I can only support a
policy that begins an immediate removal of our troops from Iraq’s civil war, and
initiates a sustained drawdown of our military presence.”"
Just another reason not to vote for Obama. The best time according to Obama to pull out, is when the war is starting to show success.
