Obama's speech on the war--read the fine print

The speech takes up seven pages on the New York Times website and I suggest that people read the Whole Thing before they start making judgments about Obama having redeemed himself. If you read The whole Thing instead of relying on summaries of it, you'll see that Obama makes some very scary statements, basically supporting the idea of a global war on terror, comparing the war on terror to the Cold War. But you'd never know that if you hadn't Read the whole speech yourself.

So do yourself a favor and do it instead of relying on accounts provided by people who want to see Obama as a savior figure.
