    So, from the huffington post article, it appears Obama is just going along with Bush's plans with Iraq, for iraq.

    Just as long as you also blame Bush if anything goes wrong after the withdrawal according to the Bush timeline.

    Of course, we know the CON$ will give Bush the credit if the Bush withdrawal timetable goes well but they will blame Obama if it fails.

    edthecynic, PLYMCO_PILGRIM, et al,

    (COMMENT)

    It is not a matter of "who" you blame for what. It is a matter of understanding the original intent versus the outcomes.

    And that has to do with US Foreign Policy in, not only Iraq, but the entire region. And it is do, in no small measure, to the lack of understanding what we (The US) was planning to do after the cessation of hostilities (PHASE IV - Post War Activities).

    Most Respectfully,
