After numerous and fawning "reports" about God Obama, only now, does Consortium News even begin to suspect something might be amiss.

RIGHT ON!!! ROBERT GATES MUST GO, AND FAST. THE IRAQ WAR MUST END. THE EXIT STRATEGY IS TO PUT THE
ARMORED PERSONNEL CARRIERS IN REVERSE AND GO BACKWARD.

ALL BLESSINGS,
