Obama: I Would Ignore Iraqi Pleas
This morning on Fareed Zakaria's GPS show on CNN, Barack Hussein Obama incredibly admitted that he would pull American troops completely out of Iraq EVEN IF the Iraqi government asked America to stay. Shockingly, the normally sharp Zakaria did not follow up to nail the senator down on the point.
The transcript from the show is not yet posted on CNN's website, but the exchange essentially went like this:
Zakaria: You've said that you think it's a mistake to keep a permanent American presence in Iraq. If the Iraqi government asked the U.S. to keep bases there, would you still pull the troops out?
Obama: Uh, screw the Iraqi people. It would, uh, be a strategic error for, uh, us to keep permanent bases in Iraq. Uh, it would, uh, undermine our, uh, diplomatic efforts with, uh, Iran and the rest of, uh, the, uh, uh, region. Having American troops, uh, in the region would, uh, REDUCE our, uh, diplomatic leverage.
Obviously, I'm paraphrasing rather liberally. But the main points are dead on. Obama isn't just inexperienced and naive. The guy is dangerously stupid.
