Obama Campaign Heralds End of Iraq War

The Obama campaign Friday introduced a video titled " Ending the War in Iraq: A promise Kept."

"This month, President Obama is making good on his promise to bring the last American troops home from Iraq in time for the holidays," says the Obama 2012 blog. "Here's a look at the President's record on the war in Iraq-from his time as a state senator through the end of this nine-year conflict."

The video, not surprisingly, offers a gauzy look at this issue, drawing a straight line from then-Senator Obama in 2004 opposing the war to his ending it this month.

It was a bit more complicated, of course, a veritable long and winding road, as we covered in October.
