Candidate Obama: Americans Have A Right To Know Before Government Takes Military Action
Barack Obama speaking at the AFL-CIO Presidential Forum on August 7, 2007:
“But the fact of the matter is that when we don’t talk to the American people – we’re debating the most important foreign policy issues that we face, and the American people have a right to know, It is not just Washington insiders that are part of the debate that has to take place with respect to how we’re going to shift our foreign policy,”
I guess that debate must have taken place in silence in the weeks before the President signed us up for yet another foreign conflict.
