Obama's Questions

More

Clearly his true métier is the formal speech rather than this sort of committee work. Still, I think Obama's line of questioning did a good job of underscoring the ultimately hollow nature of the strategy being pursued currently in Iraq. We need to stay because of these various problems, so we need to stay, and what we're doing is working, and yet somehow there's no path from Point A to Point B -- no way to connect the dots between what's happening now, and a situation where the problems have actually been solved.
