Here is Barack Obama saying that America should not withdraw troops from Iraq. I'm going to take a moment to transcribe his exact words.
"No, no I've never said tr.. I've never said that troops should be withdrawn. What I've said is that we've got to make sure that we secure and execute the rebuilding and reconstruction process effectively and properly and I don't think we should have an artificial deadline when to do that.

Note this analysis:
This is April 5, 2004 now. The bloodiest month of the war. Blackwater contractors strung up, First Fallujah, etc. And the hawkishness lasts all the way to November 20, 2006, when it suddenly changes. The elections were long over. But Chamchamal had been cancelled on Nov 6, 2006. In between the Auchi party and the cancellation we had the steadfast Obama. Before and After we had the "let's pullout" Obama. Coincidence? Maybe.
I've been recently paying attention to the 'who sent you?' argument in search of the True Obama. There's a fairly well understood principle in politics and in power that you don't get to even see The Man, much less *be* the man unless somebody important sent you. Who sent Obama? What exactly is the horse he rode in on? Let's not be coy. You don't simply walk in the door in Chicago politics and say I'm going to be the next senator in this state. You gotta have backing, and believe me, it couldn't have possibly come from Trinity Church and the South Side neighborhoods.
I say Rezko was Obama's major sponsor, but probably not the only one. Who are the men behind the man, and exactly which strings are they pulling? You really don't know do you?
