Obama Wimps Out!… Doesn't Even Bring Up Troop Withdrawal– Media Spins

Obama Cut and Runs…
Doesn’t even bring up timetables with Iraqi Leader al-Maliki

Let’s see… Barack Obama voted against the troop surge.
He voted against funding the troops.
He wanted troops out by early 2008.
He didn’t care if this caused a genocide.
He called it a civil war– until he didn’t.
He didn’t care what conditions were then, or now.
He hadn’t been to Iraq in nearly 3 years.

And, then after talking for 2 years about timetables to remove troops from Iraq, Barack Obama goes to Baghdad and wimps out
He didn’t even bring it up with the Iraqi Prime Minister!

So how does an honest, unbiased and responsible media report this flub?
Here’s how:

“Comments suggest Iraq, Obama agree on U.S. troop timeframe”
(That’s quite a headline considering Obama never even brought it up.)

Here’s Reuters headline:
Obama visits Iraq, focus on U.S. troop levels

Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said Obama did not mention his pledge to remove U.S. combat troops within 16 months if he takes office in talks with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

But in comments suggesting Iraq and Obama are not far apart on the timeframe, Dabbagh said Baghdad’s goal was for foreign combat forces to leave by the end of 2010 if security conditions allowed. Dabbagh has floated a similar timeframe before.

“We cannot give any timetables or dates but the Iraqi government believes the end of 2010 is the appropriate time for the withdrawal of the forces,” Dabbagh told reporters.

That’s your mainstream media at work.
…At work for Obama.
