Omission accomplished

Yesterday, our President called the withdrawal of American combat troops from Iraqi cities and towns “a milestone.” He said, “This is an important step forward as a sovereign and united Iraq continues to take control of its own destiny.”

Heretofore our President has been a relentless complainer about problems He inherited from the previous administration, but He failed to mention that He inherited this milestone from George Bush. Or that He had adamantly opposed the strategy that made it possible.
