There has been much talk about Sen. Barack Obama's pair of press conferences earlier this month in which he discussed refining his Iraq policy, and whether or not he'd wiggle on his promise to withdraw troops within 16 months of taking office, or if he ever actually promised that timetable or if it was a goal.
Aimee Curl and I attended three Obama events in town between June 2007 and February 2008. We recorded all three speeches. This morning I skimmed them, and edited down a few highlights, specifically what he said about the war in Iraq, so you can decide for yourself if Obama's changed his tune on Iraq. Yes, these are edited samples from his speeches. You can hear them all in their entirety here, here, and here.
