I think a lot of us in the antiwar movement would take Codepink a little more seriously if you'd stop covering for Barack Obama.
He sent another unit of Special Ops into Iraq last fall and Codepink said nothing. Not one word.
Want me to listen to you? Start talking about Iraq and stop perpetuating the lie that all US troops are out of Iraq.
If you really are unaware of this reality, you can refer to C.I.'s June 7th Iraq snapshot which notes the following (but with links):
December 6, 2012, the Memorandum
of Understanding For Defense Cooperation Between the Ministry of
Defense of the Republic of Iraq and the Department Defense of the United
States of America was signed. We covered it in the December 10th and December 11th
snapshots -- lots of luck finding coverage elsewhere including in media
outlets -- apparently there was some unstated agreement that everyone
would look the other way. It was similar to the silence that greeted Tim Arango's September 25th New York Times report which noted,
"Iraq and the United States are negotiating an agreement that could
result in the return of small units of American soldiers to Iraq on
training missions. At the request of the Iraqi government, according to
[US] General [Robert L.] Caslen, a unit of Army Special Operations
soldiers was recently deployed to Iraq to advise on counterterrorism and
help with intelligence."
