Time for the "Amateurs"?

Senator John McCain went on a rant today, declaiming to a crowd of supporters how Barack Obama was "Wrong on Iraq, wrong on Iran.." But, Obama might be right on Pakistan. In fact, he called for a policy of attacks inside Pakistan if it meant attacking Al Qaeda and Taliban forces the Pakistanis would not attack.

Now, the New York Time is reporting that is exactly Bush administration policy. The president signed secret orders in July permitting special ops attacks inside Pakistan without the approval of the Pakistani government.

This is yet another foreign policy development that Barack Obama called for and anticipated as the GOP attacked him for being naive and inexperienced. The other? The withdrawal of troops from Iraq to press attacks in Afghanistan. Which is what the Bush administration is now doing.
