GEEZ, HE REALLY IS JOHN KERRY:

OBAMA TRIED TO STALL GIS' IRAQ WITHDRAWAL (AMIR TAHERI, September 15, 2008, NY Post)

According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.

"He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington," Zebari said in an interview.

Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops - and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its "state of weakness and political confusion."

"However, as an Iraqi, I prefer to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open." Zebari says.


"Nevermind 20 million Iraqi's, what about my needs?"
