It actually matches what he's said for a long time.
You mean it matched the rest of his false campaign promises.
Iraq was the 'bad' war
More campaign rhetoric - and they were both bad wars. If Obama had been president in 2003, he might not have launched a full scale invasion. Instead, he might have spent 7 months bombing the country in full violation of both the Constitution and the War Powers Act, as he did with Libya. Fun fact: Obama's own vice president vowed to support Bush's impeachment in 2007 if he had done the same thing with Iran. And instead of kidnapping innocent targest and torturing them, he would have simply murdered them with drones. And he could have funded extremists from Saudi Arabia and Qatar to come in as "freedom fighters", and we'd have had ISIS a decade early - fun for everybody.
But Obama's extension and expansion of the occupation of Afghanistan is a complete and utter debunking of the notion that he wanted to 'cut and run' from Iraq, and that's a fact that you and the Obamabots are just going to have to deal with. Do you guys meet for coffee on Tuesdays to discuss talking points?
