Iraq’s Interior Minister Thanks U.S. Troops for Liberating Iraq

Unlike the Commander-in-Chief wannabe, Barrack Obama, who seems to have been too busy on his "World Victory Tour", Iraqi Interior Minister, Jawad Karim al-Bolani, made the time to visit and thank our wounded troops at Walter Reed for liberating Iraq. You have read that correctly, liberating, which dumps a lot of cold water on the leftists that have been calling our troops occupiers.

Minister al-Bolani also thanked the families of our troops for their sacrifices. In the meantime Obama could not find the time to enter into a town hall style debate with John McCain, that was to be sponsored by military family and veterans groups. Sort of tells you who appreciates our troops more. - Sailor

“We have come … to express our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by these great warriors, soldiers, in freeing the Iraqi people and in helping us in Iraq recover from tyranny and dictatorship,” Jawad Karim al-Bolani, Iraq’s minister of the interior, said through a translator to a handful of journalists in the lobby of the medical center.

“We also want to express our gratitude to the families of all these great men and women and express how important their sacrifices are for our nation,” he added.

Bolani’s visit with troops comes on the heels of Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-Ill.) recent trip to the Middle East, where the Democratic presidential candidate caused a stir when he canceled a planned visit to wounded American soldiers.
