DEMANDER IN CHIEF
Yesterday was Obama's Iraq Withdrawal Day. The Iraq War De-escalation Act of 2007, which he described in a speech on the Senate floor on 1/30/2007, called for a phased redeployment of US troops and 100% removal of US combat troops from Iraq by 3/31/2008. Earlier that month he had opposed the surge, saying "we will not in any imaginable way be able to accomplish any new progress." A few months earlier he had declared Iran and Syria benign observers of Iraq. His public statements took the usual "make love, not war" or "talking is acting" tone.
