In a recent comment by his representative, Ayatollah Sistani told Iraqi officials not worry about the politicians who are running on a cut and run platform (Obama)...
They are just saying that because it's election time
"The pledges to withdraw from Iraq given by (officials) from occupation forces countries are only for elections sake ", Ahmed al-Safi, a representative of Shiite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, said at Friday prayer speech in Karbala.
The cleric noted "the reality of their pledges is that they desire their troops to stay in (Iraq)".
former Obama advisor, Samantha Power, said the same thing to the BBC before she was let go by the Obama campaign:
The only thing I believe Obama on is his desire to raise taxes, disarm the U.S. in the face of hostile enemies, keep us from energy independence, and piss money away on the popular hysteria of the month, global warming, so he can help his buddy Al Gore make millions on our tax dollars.
