I think he's way to smart to not realize (like Pelosi *& Reid didn't) that one of the main reasons why he was elected, beside the economy of course, was to get our troops out of an occupation of Iraq that is more & more unwelcome, accomplishing nothing good for our security & still costing us U.S. taxpayers over 10 billion per month which we obviously can't afford.

I might agree with you Terry, but only in the sense of realizing how deeply screwed we are by the policies we have been following in Iraq. Realistically though, between the press & government "leaks" I'm sure we taxpayers have a pretty good understanding of the problems we face over there & I doubt, other than "Operational" intelligence, Obama was told much he didn't already know. (with very little "Human Intelligence" available to us & the fact that we have so few people who can even speak their language, I fear our intelligence agencies have very little real information to provide anyone!)
