A quick correction to one Obama claim

In last night’s debate:


We rushed into Iraq,” Obama said. “Sen. McCain and President Bush suggested it wasn’t that important to catch [Osama] bin Laden right now, and we could muddle through.”


That’s not quite true, Senator Obama.  We didn’t “rush” into Iraq.  The desire to project US military power throughout the entire Middle East is decades old.  The Project for a New American Century, featuring such thinkers as Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheyney, Don Rumsfeld, Elliot Abrams, …, clearly announced their desire to take over Iraq way back in 1998.
