Hope, change and more of the same

One of my few areas of 100% agreement with candidate Obama was his early opposition to American involvement in Iraq.

But, in the words of one of Obama's biggest boosters reviewing Obama's foreign policy performance:

"In Iraq, Obama postponed any rapid withdrawal, keeping troops there as long as the Bush administration had pledged."

Thus, one of Obama's major supporters admits that the anti Iraq war candidate who ran for office promising early withdrawal is sticking to the Bush / Cheney Iraq war policy.

As of today, over 130,000 American troops, and a greater number of U.S. "contractors", i.e., mercenaries, remain in Iraq.

Obama lied, people died?
