Yesterday, President Obama gave long overdue recognition to the American success in Iraq. Speaking to U.S. soldiers in Baghdad he said, "From getting rid of Saddam, to reducing violence, to stabilizing the country, to facilitating elections -- you have given Iraq the opportunity to stand on its own as a democratic country. That is an extraordinary achievement."
I was also going to bring up the two excellent letters appearing in the WSJ today deriding Obama's euphemisms - "overseas contingency operation" (war) and man caused disaster (terrorist attack). And that the WSJ editorial today which praises Obama for his Iraq remarks mentions the silly euphemism he's using for the surge in Afghanistan - "tactical demographic enhancement". And today's WSJ op-ed criticizing the foolishness of Obama's proposed military cuts in a time of war and geopolitical turmoil.
I was going to bring these up, but since Obama deserves untarnished credit for his Iraq statement - I won't.
