Mitt Romney and Republicans such as Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) were all over President Obama for announcing the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of the year. Mr. Romney, apparently without being ironic, pronounced it an “astonishing failure,” and Mr. Graham said it was all about campaign politics, as if that was something the Republicans would never do with foreign policy. No sirree!
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a cogent reply:
They should have raised those issues when President Bush agreed to the agreement to withdraw troops by the end of this year.
Not to mention the fact that the Iraqis want us out. Not that that matters or anything.
