Barack Obama in Afghanistan and Iraq
For me, the fact that Obama decided to travel to the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq demonstrates integrity. Much has been said about the gamble he was facing, which apparently was not daunting enough to him to keep him home. Some critics have speculated about his inexperience in foreign affairs. I say look at the shape we’re in as a result of the really experienced men who’ve been in charge. As far as I can tell, Barack Obama is in the process of successfully facing these intimidating situations knowing that one misstep, one gaffe, would jeopardize his chances of becoming president. My hat is off to him.
