The Dillard Doctrine

Urban Conservative Commentary on Politics & Life

More Change…

….from the junior Senator from Illinois:

“We’re going to have to continue to train their army and police to make them more effective,” the Illinois senator added, calling such support consistent with his proposal for a 16-month timetable for withdrawing U.S. combat troops.

Asked if he had a clearer idea after talks with diplomatic and military officials how big a force would need to be left behind for those tasks, Obama replied: “I do think that’s entirely conditions-based.

“It’s hard to anticipate where we may be six months from now, or a year from now, or a year and a half from now.”

You don’t say. That sounds awfully familiar….like something someone else said a long time ago.

And in a footnote, neither “six months, a year from now, or a year and a half from now” equal Obama’s 16 month withdrawal plan. Think al-Maliki’s regretting opening his month now?
