Isn't the Obamessiah's big resume item his years as a "community organizer" (whatever the hell that is and he actually did) in Chicago? Didn't He say that the (non-)war in Iraq was lost and the surge wouldn't help, only to flip-flop last night and admit that it has worked?
The how can He explain the inconvenient truth that TWICE as many people have been shot and killed in Chicago than all of Iraq?
An estimated 123 people were shot and killed over the summer. That's nearly double the number of soldiers killed in Iraq over the same time period.Add this to the pile of things the Treason Media won't be broadcasting nationally in the next two months.
In May, cbs2chicago.com began tracking city shootings and posting them on Google maps. Information compiled from our reporters, wire service reports and the Chicago Police Major Incidents log indicated that 123 people were shot and killed throughout the city between the start of Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1.
According to the Defense Department, 65 soldiers were killed in combat in Iraq. About the same number were killed in Afghanistan over that same period.
In the same time period, an estimated 245 people were shot and wounded in the city.
