An Obama Mailing Counters Clinton On Iran

Sen. Barack Obama's campaign said it has mailed this postcard to 100,000 Iowa voters in an effort to bracket the defensive mailing sent by Hillary Clinton.

While others went along, Obama opposed Bush’s war plans.

Barack Obama is the ONLY major candidate for president to oppose both the Iraq War from the very start and the Senate amendment that raises the risk of war with Iran.

BACK:

While other Democrats voted for the Kyl-Lieberman Amendment, Barack Obama opposed another Bush foreign policy fiasco.

"Why is this amendment so dangerous? Because George Bush and Dick Cheney could use this language to justify keeping our troops in Iraq as long as they can point to a threat from Iran. And because they could use this language to justify an attack on Iran as a part of the ongoing war in Iraq."

-Barack Obama


Judgment we can trust.

Barack Obama. President.
