Obama Hails Pullback in Iraq, Warns of More Violence

By Michael D. Shear
President Obama hailed the transfer of authority in Iraqi cities and towns, calling the long-planned move an "important step" toward a complete American pullout from the war that began six years ago.

Speaking in the East Room at an event for socially responsible innovators, Obama predicted more of the violence that has spiked in the last several days.

"There are those who will test Iraqi security," he said. "I'm confidant that those forces will fail. The future belongs to those who build, not those who destroy."

The president praised the military and civilians who served in Iraq, saying they remain "in the hearts and prayers" of people across the country.

Obama called the partial pullout "an important milestone" and said it will help the country to "responsibly" leave the country.

"The Iraqi people are rightly treating this day as a cause for celebration, he said.

Okay. You've gone far enough with the Bush line. Now, please, stop being co-opted by the Bush-Cheney leave-behinds in your administration.



• Bush-legacy extrajudicial targeting/punishment network makes a mockery of the rule of law at the grassroots-- violating civil and human rights.

• Is Team Obama unaware, naive -- or purposely misled by Bush holdovers?

President Obama is being co-opted into becoming the enabler of a federally-funded and overseen "multi-agency coordination action" program of nationwide extrajudicial targeting and punishment...

...a vigilante Gestapo that is misusing federally-funded volunteer programs to subvert the rule of law -- deploying a civilian vigilante army that covertly implants GPS tracking devices to stalk, persecute, vandalize and harass unjustly targeted citizens and their families.

This secretive multi-agency "program" also misuses government surveillance operations to censor, and maliciously tamper with, the telecommunications of many thousands of the unjustly targeted -- and funnels surveillance data to citizen "gang stalker" harassers.

An array of "programs of personal financial destruction" decimates the finances of "target" families -- contributing to economic distress. And microwave "directed energy weapons" are being used to degrade their very lives -- a gross violation of human rights, government-enabled crimes against humanity.

And no authorities will investigate -- invoking the "Gulag" tactic of dismissing those who seek justice as "delusional."

Please, Team Obama: Wake up and smell the police state that is co-opting your administration and making POTUS a pitchman and enabler for an American Gestapo.
