"On Friday, October 21, President Obama announced the withdrawal of all combat troops from Iraq. ... [T]he Republicans and right wingers bent on characterizing anything the president does as an error have predictably accused the president of 'giving in,' of putting the United States in danger due to the withdrawal of troops. The mainstream press has been little better or kinder ... All of this could be expected. What was not expected was the silence of the anti-war movement." [editor's note: Maybe it's because veterans of the peace movement recall how little they actually had to do with ending the Vietnam horrors - SAT] (10/26/11)
