Obama speaks about foreign policy

Yesterday marked the five year anniversary of Bush's invasion of Iraq. Since that time five years ago, the death toll has continued to rise, yet - according to polls - citizens of the United States are paying even less attention to the on-going and costly conflict.

Yesterday, many people tried to refocus national attention on Iraq and the decisions made by Bush those five years past. One of those people was Barack Obama, who made a speech yesterday about Iraq and about his ideas on foreign policy and the military.

As I had hoped in my previous post ("Barack Obama speaks about A More Perfect Union"), this speech seems to be the second in a series which I consider to be an abridged version of the chapters within Barack Obama's book "The Audacity of Hope". So, if you truly want to understand what Senator Obama has to say on the issues and where he will lead the United States of America, I encourage to watch these speeches and not simply rely on the quick blurbs or clips provided on prime time TV.
