Obama on Pakistan: “I said we put all of our eggs in the Musharraf basket. We should be going after al-Qaeda and we should be making sure they’re serious about fighting terrorism and moving to democracy. I was right about that.”
Okay, what weren’t we doing that we should have been in Pakistan? Specifically? Who are the guys who we should have “put our eggs” in, to use Obama’s metaphor? How should we have snubbed Musharraf?
Obama pats himself on the back for saying we have to “fight terrorism” and “move towards democracy,” but those are goals, not strategies or tactics.
(By the way, if we were so sure Musharraf was going to rig the elections… how did he lose? That vote couldn’t have been that dirty if the guy who we thought was going to rig it came in a distant third.)
Obama: “It is indisputable that we have seen a reduction of violence in Iraq.” Knock me over with a feather, I did not think I would ever see a Democrat say that.
