Obama Loses Face - and Iraq War

Obama lost a war that the US won twice.
With all the audacity of "hope" President Obama announced today that the US will be removing ALL troops from Iraq at the end of the year.  Even though that will sound like a nice campaign promise to his leftist and demented base, this is a diplomatic failure of gargantuan circumstances.  President Bush had agreed to troop drawdown in his last year of his presidency - all Obama had to do was manage the situation.  And that would have entailed having some troop presence and airbases to maintain some control over the region, Iran, Syria and others - that's why we went in there.

Instead Obama bungled it all away - all this year the administration was trying to negotiate some additional  presence 'after' we left - but it got confused with mixed messages he was sending while trying to balance his political base at home.  Now the growing Iran influence will probably take over Iraq and our years of sacrifice will be for naught - because of this incompetant, ill-equipped and ignorant President.  The "i's" have it.

Amanda Knox is Innocent

She's innocent and always has been.
Thank god this woman was acqutted.  She was railroaded, period.  And the press still talks about her like she is guilty.  It is terrible.  It is a classic case of the press not doing their job.  Even now I am watching some clueless woman on CNN who can't even get her facts straight about the case.  This has happened across all media, even Fox.  No one seems to know the facts or cares. It is pitiful that people are jumping on reporting this case and don't have any clue what it is about.

She was railroaded.   Period.  No DNA, no motive, no nothing.  The Italian prosecutor was corrupt. He even spent 16 months in jail.  Everyone knows it.  The Italian people even eventually came around.  Get over it .
