I guess al-Qaida isn't that close to defeated...


The Washington Post just ran another story on how al-Qaida in Iraq is rebounding following our withdrawal.

I’m not saying President Obama was wrong to withdraw at least the bulk of U.S. troops from Iraq, but citing Iraq as a major accomplishment and claiming, as he did in May, that defeating al-Qaida is within reach is just patently false.

If the President tries to claim that in one of the future debates, Mr. Romney should slam him for letting key elements of al-Qaida get out of control.
