So, mission accomplished, then?
And so I want to be very clear: We sent our troops to Iraq to do away with Saddam Hussein’s regime – and you got the job done. We kept our troops in Iraq to help establish a sovereign government – and you got the job done.
-Barack Obama in a speech to US troops.

Obama is taking a page from George Aiken’s playbook. Aiken told LBJ in regards to Vietnam declare victory and go home. This is exactly what Obama is doing. Saying the war was about bringing down Saddam is the only way we could win; if the war was about human rights and democracy flowing like a river in the Middle East-no way we could ever win.
