Credit Where Credit is Due Part 2 0f 2 (Obama)

President Obama
M.E. Assessment March 11, 2008 - The Real Straight Talker: Obama
What we said then.... Why do so many connect with Obama, obviouly the least experienced?He believes what he says, we can tell. He carefully explains his rationale and criticisms in plain speech that resonates with a public he seems eager to unite. Even if he must later adjust to reality, he is principled, intelligent and, like Reagan, able to communicate well.
Example: Obama Delivers Bold Speech About War on Terror In a strikingly bold speech about terrorism Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Illinois Sen. Barack Obama called not only for a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, but a redeployment of troops into Afghanistan and even Pakistan — with or without the permission of Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf.
Are U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan? Regardless, has Obama picked up the pace of drone attacks against Pakistani Qaeda and Taliban positions?
Answer: Since Obama's first year as President there have been more deadly drone attacks in Pakistan than there had been during all of the previous 4 years together. Moreover, the minimum enemy confirmed kills have risen by over 100 each year since. Also, see C.I.A. Steps Up Drone Attacks on Taliban in Pakistan (New York Times).
Submarines are always silent and strange.
