  • President saluting Operation Iraqi Freedom vets
    It's always appropriate to see a sitting President acknowledge the devoted service of the men and women of the Armed Forces. However, while the article makes in passing a brief reference to his opposition to the war, it does not point out that his opposition extended to actively working and voting against the "surge" ordered by President Bush in 2007 which effectively was the means by which the tide was turned in the war. Indeed, in ending our involvement in Iraq, the President was following the timetable set up by the Bush administration for such action, even though his negotiators botched the talks last year with Prime Minister al-Maliki that would have permitted continuing direct training and logistical assistance to the still-fragile Iraqi army and air force. As one who himself never saw fit to serve in the U.S. military, the President appears clearly uncomfortable with any use of American "hard power," and has displayed a dangerously naive attitude toward the "rogue states" who are our deadly enemies and who clearly are adept at playing the game of realpolitique.
