Question: with the election around the corner, could he and his team have only been using the troops as his ace in the back pocket? He declared AN END TO THE IRAQI WAR, but there is currently NO WAR GOING ON. It's an occupation going on in Iraq. So again he's lying to the american public.. The war was over years ago as we now know! Americans have been destroying each other over there for the last couple of years, committing all types of beastly acts over there, as they are all portrayed as heroes over here... By bringing them all home he can now say he kept his word though, but what does by the end of the year really mean?? By saying the he caught and killed Osama, he is clearly a liar willing to do or say anything that will benefit him and raise his ratings amongst the american people because he clearly doesn't give a ---- about what anyone outside of america, except Israel thinks of him. This all reads just like a movie script to me: So is this just another lie to secure that he is 'elected' by the people who don't seem to realize that he has already been 're-selected'? After his re-election, he surely will find another leader in Afrika to go after and kill and so the troops will be needed once again. So why waste the time, money and energy in bringing them home at all Mr. Obama. But i know 'he's a man of his word'.... Chuck D. once said 'Don't believe the hype'
