Yesterday the New York Daily News reported that Barack Obama's website had been purged of any documents that referred to the Surge's failure. However, Gateway Pundit noticed that at least one key anti-military document remained on Barack Obama's website.
It took all of about 30 seconds to find other major gaffes by Obama's crack webmasters. Some of the items they forgot to scrub include:
• Barack Obama's current news page (yes, the current news page):
Leaving Iraq will make America safer
In recent weeks, I've been asked if the "surge" is working, and if we should continue to fight the war in Iraq. The answer is decisively no. Those who support the surge are making the same mistakes that war supporters have made all along: They fail to understand how the Iraq war sets back our security, and they fail to understand that there is no military solution in Iraq. I am the only major candidate for president who opposed the war in Iraq from the beginning, before it was politically popular.
• Interview with Barack Obama:
Q: On Iraq, some people have been saying our only two options are all in or all out. Obviously you don't see it that way.
A. Here's my view on the situation. There are two indisputable facts, and then there's a choice. Fact No. 1: the surge is not working. It has not changed the dynamics on the ground. It has put more U.S. troops at risk. It has not strengthened the Iraqi government. It has not quelled the antagonism between the various factions, and it has not lessened the strength of the insurgency.
• It is time to bring our troops home:
"It is time to bring our troops home because it has made us less safe," said Obama, an Illinois Democrat running for president. "This has been a distraction from the real war on terrorists, and the fact of the matter is that al-Qaida, we know from the national intelligence reports, has gotten stronger."
..."[Senators Gregg and Sununu] have said that they recognize the surge is not working the way it should and it is time for us to have a change of course..."
Let the scrubbing begin...
Now that's change you can believe in!
Update: Voila! -- ***poof*** -- No more civil war!
