Texas Debate: The Surge

February 21, 2008
Texas Dem Debate
Did the Surge work?
Embedded video from CNN Video
ALMA BROWN: You were opposed to the surge in the beginning, were you wrong?

OBAMA: Well, I think it is indisputable that we’ve seen violence reduced in Iraq. And that’s a credit to our brave men and women in uniform. But this is a tactical victory imposed upon a huge strategic blunder.

And I think that, when we’re having a debate with John McCain, it is going to be much easier for the candidate who was opposed to the concept of invading Iraq in the first place to have a debate about the wisdom of that decision than having to argue about the tactics subsequent to the decision.

Obama never answers though he’ll be happy to debate McCain.
