Antiwar groups and other liberal activists are increasingly concerned at signs that Barack Obama’s national security team will be dominated by appointees who favored the Iraq invasion and hold hawkish views on other important foreign policy issues.
The activists are uneasy not only about signs that both Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates could be in the Obama Cabinet, but at reports suggesting that several other short-list candidates for top security posts backed the decision to go to war.

My first reaction was BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Then I realized how totally PWND these people have been. Pres Obama’s gonna take office, and one of the first things he does (just like Bill Clinton did) was order airstrikes. Odds are it’ll be against Iran. If he was sincere about “talking” with Iran, he’d do it now as their nucular program is bringing the world to the brink of disaster. It’s not a matter you just sorta…fit in after 9 Innaugural balls. No. Nu-uh. World’s on the brink, UN inspectors say they could already have a bomb, world and DNC says that’s a “game-changer”; unacceptable. This isn’t a wait around and talk when you feel like it bit. He knows talks are not likely to do anything. He knows the UN’s already tried sanctions as has the US. He knows what it’s gonna take.
…and now the most fervent opponents of the war in Iraq are afraid they’ve elected a hawk? Hard to imagine they’ll have the courage to realize they were misled in 2002-2008 by the DNC.
This is just CLASSIC! I can’t believe it’s happening before January let alone December!
