Pres. Obama Outlines Goals for Afghanistan, Iraq

It's so good to finally be able to listen to policy being discussed that can be understood, put to words and thoughts that don't make a mockery of the Presidential Office and Country!

NOTE: the video below includes some relatively unobtrusive but noticeable pop-up advertisements; at least one is for a suspected scam ("Jennifer's Money Blog" which goes to "officialstimulusgrant dot org"). The video is, however, the whole news hour and worth watching. Just beware the advertisements. -- GH
