Obama the war criminal

Instapundit : DURING THE CAMPAIGN, Obama criticized Bush for “just airraiding villages and killing civilians.”
Now the Red Cross complains that Obama is just airraiding villages and killing civilians. But the antiwar movement isn’t showing the degree of moral grandstanding that it showed when Bush was President.
Moe Lane : The curious incident of the antiwar movement in the night-time.
So what con we surmise from this little investigation? How about the left-wing of this country is populated with hypocritical ideologues who not only hated Bush but had a severe dislike for America. Now that they have a leader who they feel a kinship with, well, it’s all good.
...
...the antiwar movement is run by racists who only like brown people when they can be used as clubs with which to beat anybody to the antiwar movement’s Right.
...
Well, anyone to their Right, and Jews.
Ed Morrissey : Karma happens, Mr. President
I might have more sympathy and inclination to defend Barack Obama from Peter Brookes’ cartoon in today’s Times of London, but since it echoes an unfair attack launched by Obama himself on his predecessor, I’ll chalk this up to karma.
...
Just to remind readers, Barack Obama had no problem offering the exact same kind of smear against Bush in August 2007 (Video)...
...
But let’s also put the blame for the civilian casualties where they have always belonged — on the terrorists who hide in civilian populations, exploit them for cover, and most often target them for murder. The Taliban has never been a stand-up army fighting a war of liberation, or even an honest rebellion. Even when they held power, they held it by terrorizing Afghans into compliance. Brookes needs to fix responsibility where it belongs, and apparently needs to fix his moral compass as well.
Barack Hussein Obama is a lying scumsucker who has repeatedly smeared our troops...
“We’ve got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)

At a fancy '05 Manhattan fundraiser, Obama told the approving crowd that the Bush administration was using soldiers in Iraq as "cannon fodder."

“You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon — supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon. Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq. And as a consequence, they didn’t have enough ammunition, they didn’t have enough humvees. They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it was for them to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief.” -- Barack Hussein Obama

..."oftentimes our women servicemembers are more prone to post-traumatic stress disorder partly because they — there's a sad, but real, problem of sexual harassment and sexual abuse for women veterans, and that makes them much more prone, then, to have post-traumatic stress disorder." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)

"If you talk to commanders on the ground there, they'll tell you, 'Instead of having another platoon, I'd rather have a couple of agricultural specialists." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D) who hasn't been "on the ground there" in Afghanistan
