Barack Obama, after his trip to Iraq:
"Here is what I will say," Obama said, "I think that, I did not anticipate, and I think that this is a fair characterization, the convergence of not only the surge but the Sunni awakening in which a whole host of Sunni tribal leaders decided that they had had enough with Al Qaeda, in the Shii’a community the militias standing down to some degrees. So what you had is a combination of political factors inside of Iraq that then came right at the same time as terrific work by our troops. Had those political factors not occurred, I think that my assessment would have been correct."Come on, Senator, you can do it.
Obama maintained that his decision was not wrong.I guess he can't do it. Maybe he's considering the plight of the anti-warriors. That many heads exploding would make a big mess.
Could you be married to a person who can't admit error? No wonder Michelle always seems PO'd. :-)
