Obama Holds Second News Conference on Iraq Withdrawal Plan
By Garance Franke-Ruta
Saying, "We're going to try this again. Apparently I wasn't clear enough this morning on my position with respect to the war in Iraq," Sen. Barack Obama held a second news conference this afternoon in Fargo, N.D., on his position on withdrawing from Iraq.
"Let me be as clear as I can be. I intend to end this war," Obama said in remarks prior to taking questions. "My first day in office I will bring the Joint Chiefs of Staff in and I will give them a new mission, and that is to end this war -- responsibly, deliberately but decisively."
He concluded: "This is the same position I that had four months ago. It's the same position that I had eight months ago. It's the same position that I had 12 months ago."
