At the 34th minute of the video of Mr. Orzag’s March 3rd testimony to the House Budget Committee posted on the Committee’s website, the true genius of the Obama Administration is revealed. Mr. Orzag testifies that the Iraq War ends sooner under the proposed budget.
The alternative is apparently, that if it were not for the Obama Administration, the surge in Iraq would have continued indefinitely. (Like Truman’s troops in Korea? Not a good example, because President Obama plans to leave 50,000 “non-combat” troops in Iraq.)
Thus it has been proclaimed.
Thus it is so.
