    Anti-surge comments off Obama's Web site

    [QUOTE]Anti-surge comments off Obama's Web site
    Published: July 16, 2008 at 9:25 AMOrder reprints | Print Story | Email to a Friend | Post a Comment Close WASHINGTON, July 16 (UPI) -- Barack Obama's initial opposition to the surge of U.S. troops in Iraq is gone from the likely Democratic nominee's Web site, a review of the site indicated.

    When U.S. President George Bush ordered the surge in January 2007, Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois, said he wasn't persuaded the additional military personnel "is going to solve the sectarian violence there" and would have the opposite effect. Recently, however, he acknowledged the surge helped reduce violence but said he was still is of the opinion that political progress hasn't been made.

    Media outlets noticed Tuesday that Obama's campaign Web site no longer listed the surge as part of "The Problem" among defense issues included on the site, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    [B]An Obama spokeswoman said the deletion was part of a site update to "reflect changes in current events," that includes a new section on the rise of al-Qaida violence in Afghanistan. [/B]

    you're right......

    he would be a much better candidate if he didn't acknowledge his mistakes.....

    someone should never be allowed to refine their opinion based on what transpires....


    like me....I thought "Event Horizon" was going to be awesome...so regardless of my opinion after I saw the movie......I must still stick by my original opinion......

    "Event Horizon" rocked!!!!!

    You have a hard-on for trying to find a flip-flop.....

    there was no flip-flop here....he didn't come out and say he is now in favor of the surge....just cherry picked prior statements for deletion.....

    If the surge was a sure fire success then bring everyone home. Pretty simple right?

    Yes, I agree. The surge worked. We've won. Time for the troops in Iraq to come home. (really).

    c'mon man....the ending fell apart.....it was bulding up so great...and then all of a sudden there was blood everywhere....

    the best thing about the second half of the movie is where Fishbourne, after seeing the tapes from the previous crew says, "ok we're outta here!!!"

    No nation building was a flip flop too...right? NO NATION BUILDING!

    Let's go build a fuqing nation. In fact, let's go build a fuqing nation my heart attack prone vice president said would be a "quagmire" to occupy in 1994. And when it ends up being a quagmire like he predicted, let's blame the idiotic democrats.

    No nation building...SUCK IT AMERICA!
