    :D Shoot first and aim later? Obama. You are a hypocrite as big as your followers.

    Right on CNN. Key sentence. And the video is at the link.

    And we had this brazen attack on a U.S. base where nine servicemen were killed.


    Here's the 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.
