Yes, and while he was much better thatn who came before …
I still wager he’s exactly the same as who came before in practice. This is a telling testament to a forced hand based on reality as opposed to ideals. And you’ll likely counter with his hand was forced because of his predecessor. While valid, it does make you wonder whether a lot of his predecessor’s doings were just as forced based on reality (to which you and I are not privvy to).
That reality led Obama (according to the cyber article) to ramp up the effort of his predecessor against Iran.
That reality led Obama to clone the surge in Iraq in Afghanistan.
That reality led Obama to renege on closing Guantanamo.
Basically, everything you’ve ever touted to hate about Bush, Obama had the opportunity to “end” and not only did he not do that, in many cases he went further on. Which to me, says maybe Bush wasn’t all that wrong if somebody so diametrically opposed to the concept could be persuaded to take such a course with gusto.
