In a revealing comment on Prime Minister Maliki's statement endorsing Sen. Obama's withdrawal timeframe, a McSame advisor said the voters "don't care about Iraqi leaders," only what the military says. Unfortunately for McSame, who wants permanent U.S. bases there, the Iraqi leaders were elected by the Iraqi people. It wasn't long ago that McSame was stating that we should leave Iraq if asked by their democratically-elected government. It's clear that the vast majority of Iraqis don't want permanent U.S. military bases on Iraqi soil, and it will be an issue in their upcoming parliamentary elections.
Even more revealing was the comment by a frequent McSame foreign policy advisor, reacting to the Iraqi leader's desire for a withdrawal timetable: "We're f*cked."
