It was quite a gaffe for Obama to say that he wouldn't have supported The Surge if he could go back and do it all over again. True to form however, he has turned this foreign policy gaffe into his foreign policy:
I am sure Obama did not expect any kind of pushback from her, which is undoubtedly why he agreed to an interview with Couric instead of, say, Sean Hannity. But even Katie Couric seems incredulous - it is not a good sign when one of your friendly twinkies doesn't even believe you.
Here is the problem with Obama's foreign policy worldview: he doesn't seem to believe that the U.S. can ever walk and chew gum at the same time. If we are fighting in Iraq, according to Obama, it must mean we are completely ignoring Afghanistan. And to hell with the Iraqi people and their struggle to build a democracy - spending all of those billions on some domestic stimulus package would have made America safer. Obama does not explain how this would be nor can he - it is simply ludicrous.
Obama also denies that Iraq is the central front on the War on Terror. Funny, but Osama bin Laden himself said the following:
"The most important and serious issue today for the whole world is this Third World War, which the Crusader-Zionist coalition began against the Islamic nation. It is raging in the land of the two rivers. The world's millstone and pillar is in Baghdad, the capital of the caliphate."
The President, the generals, intelligence analysts and hell, even the enemy himself says Iraq is the central front in the war on terror. Not good enough! Foreign policy expert Barack Obama has spoken, and that is good enough for you, peasant.

P.S. In fact, notice how McCain has the cojones to interview with Couric. Okay okay so she is more poodle than pit bull . . . but when will Obama sit down with anyone who isn't a pre-approved leftist?
