It’s a lie

President Obama has now announced that all our combat troops are out of Iraq. It’s not true, but it is what he said—with great flourish. The following is from a letter from a soldier in Iraq. Our troops know when the boss is, well, not telling the truth. It annoys them—and it should us.

“Take our Brigade for example. We were originally called a HBCT (Heavy Brigade Combat Team). Well since Obama said he would pull all of the “combat” troops out by Aug all they did before we left was change our name from a HBCT to a AAB (Advise and Assist Brigade). We have the same personnel/equipment layout as before and are doing the same missions. The ONLY difference is that they changed our name from a HBCT to an AAB and that’s how he is getting away with saying that he has pulled all of the “combat” troops out. It is really ridiculous what he’s doing and he has ticked alot of people off. And it’s funny how the media is buying all of it to.”
