    He is a hypocrite. And the media are full of hypocrites as well.

    Barack Obama Used Troop Deaths To Ding Bush, McCain Support For Iraq In 2008

    The Obama campaign hit Mitt Romney for using the “tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya” to “launch a political attack.” On a July 2008 appearance on CNN, then-Senator used the death of U.S. troops in Afghanistan as talking point to ding John McCain and President Bush for their support of the Iraq War.

    Here's the actual video and transcript.

    Here are Obama's slams in which he invokes the troop deaths:

    John McCain, who supported the war from the start, said we'd be greeted as liberators, has really focused on the tactical issues in Iraq. And the surge has no doubt reduced violence. And I think all Americans are thrilled by that.

    But what George Bush and John McCain have missed consistently from the start of this process is the broader strategy.

    You know, was it a wise thing to go in there and what are the costs and benefits of staying there indefinitely?

    We're spending $10 billion a month there. We've spent $200 billion since the surge began. Meanwhile, the situation where -- you know, where the central front against terrorism should be taking place, in Afghanistan, the situation has deteriorated. And we had this brazen attack on a U.S. base where nine servicemen were killed.
