Just in case you need a program to keep up with his foreign policy resolve, the Washington Post has one for you.
Tonight, Senator Obama’s 2004 Iraq policy will be shown on ABC’s Nightline in a never before aired interview. In this interview, he further shows that his Iraq policy waxes and wanes with the polls, and that the issue has never been one of substance for him-just political pandering and posturing for power (which he’s finally getting now as the Democratic Party nominee for President).
“My assumption would be that if we could actually stabilize Iraq, in such a way that you do not have warfare between the Sunnis the Shii’as and the Kurds, some semblance of law and order in that country, then I think that there is no doubt that the Kerry administration is going to be interested in bringing back the reservists and the National Guardsmen who are currently there, but ”

“My 16-month timeline, if you examine everything I’ve said, was always premised on making sure our troops were safe,” Obama told reporters as his campaign plane landed in North Dakota, a state no Democratic presidential candidate has carried since 1964. “And my guiding approach continues to be that we’ve got to make sure that our troops are safe, and that Iraq is stable. And I’m going to continue to gather information to find out whether those conditions still hold.”
The Barack/Bush Iraq policy gets closer and closer.
