I saw this over at Gateway Pundit and nearly fell off my chair. Again I will have to violate my ban on AP simply because this is just a stunning report (You may need to wait for it to load – seems to be a very popular video):
“But it is beginning to look more and more like the winning side has been determined.
The Iraqi people have decided the time has come to stop the violence, stop facilitating it in any way “
Now let’s remember that Obama’s 16 month pull out plan required us to LEAVE before we had victory. Obama had no intention of winning the war in Iraq, he only planned on ‘ending’ it. He voted against The Surge many times. The media is starting to realize Obama is too far out there even for them. We have victory in Iraq, and we will now pull back as conditions warrant – which was NEVER Obama’s plan.
Just because it took 16 months of valiant efforts across Iraq before Obama’s 16 month plan could even sound plausible is not a testament to his leadership. It is just a reminder that even a stopped watch is right once or twice a day (depending on which kind you have). Obama has been stuck on his stupid plan for so long he doesn’t even understand it has been overtaken by victory – that is not leadership. That is what we call stuck in a rut.
