Remember when 2008 candidate Obama said that the FIRST THING he was going to do if elected President was going to immediately bring the troops home from Iraq?
Or did he mean Afghanistan?
In either case, he lied. (Keep in mind that Obama did NOT end the Iraq War in December 2011. The Status of Forces Agreement that the Bush administration was coerced into signing by the Iraqi government back in 2008 ended the war in December 2011.)
And remember Obama’s promise on transparency?
