DID PRESIDENT OBAMA END THE WAR IN IRAQ?

Ken Berwitz

Our wonderful "neutral" media are currently heralding President Obama as the man who ended the war in Iraq.  From NBC News' account:

For President Barack Obama, the military pullout is the fulfilment of an election promise to bring troops home from a conflict inherited from his predecessor that tainted America's standing worldwide

Is that true?  Did President Obama end the war in Iraq? 

No he did not.  President Bush did. 

I used NBCs report (complete with its misspelling of fulfillment) to show you how compromised that sorry excuse for a news source is.  But countless other media venues are just as compromised for pumping out the same BS.

Now that we've seen NBC's account, let's counter with facts and reality.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama's pledge, depending on which audience he was speaking to at the time, was that hed get the troops out of Iraq in 16 months, in 12 months, or as the first thing I will do, I will get our troops home, we will bring an end to this war.  And you can take that to the bank. (watch the video and see/hear for yourself).

But December, 2011 is the 36th month of President Obama's administration - over a year and a half past his outermost promise to bring the troops home. 

In truth, President Obama is doing nothing other than fulfilling an agreement that President Bush entered into with Iraq in November of 2008.  Here are the details of Bush's Status of Forces (SOF) agreement.  Read them for yourself.

These are facts.  Easily checkable.  Indisputable.  Yet we have Barack Obama's Accomplice Media celebrating this event as a great triumph of his.

And, yes, these are the same media who squeal like stuck pigs if you call them biased.
