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.
