Reuters Finds Only 1 Iraqi Against Obama

From the messiah’s lickspittle minions at Reuters:

Iraqis say they like Obama, divided on his policies

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is popular among Iraqis.

In two dozen interviews across the country, many told Reuters a black man would understand their plight

I support Obama. I think he is the best for Iraq and for the world … if McCain wins I will be devastated,” said Mustafa Salah, an office worker in the southern city of Basra.

Hisham Fadhil, a doctor in northern Kirkuk added: “He is much better than others because he is black and black people were tyrannized in America. I think he will feel our suffering.” …

Indeed, Iraqis are divided over Obama’s plan to withdraw U.S. combat troops within 16 months if he wins office. Some say the policy is overdue while others are opposed because they feel Iraq’s security forces are not ready.

What Obama said about pulling out U.S. forces is just for political gains. It is unrealistic,” said Munadhil al-Mayyahi, an independent politician in Basra.

Kamiran Mohammed, from Kirkuk, said he visited the United States recently as part of a polling watchdog to study elections. Obama would be good for Iraq, not McCain, he said.

When I was in the United States I found Democrats are more peaceful and avoid wars,” Mohammed said…

The face of America was spoilt by the Republicans and Bush. A McCain win means Bush stays,” said Zainab Riyad, a teacher…

In “two dozen interviews” Reuters could only dig up one person who opposes Mr. Obama’s plan for a precipitous withdrawal of US troops from Iraq? (And that person is described as a politician.)

Meanwhile, everyone else thinks that this man who believes Iraqis were better off under Saddam will be good for their country.

Sure, we believe this is the consensus opinion over there.

Oddly enough, the higher ups at Reuters have now disappeared this “story”:

Is it possible that the pro-Obama bias of this story embarrassed even Reuters?

(Just kidding.)
