OBAMA: TAKE OFF THE GLOVES:
Sen. Barack Obama said Friday the use of military force should not be taken off the table when dealing with Iran, which he called "a threat to all of us."
Speaking before a pro-Israel crowd at a downtown hotel, Obama also repeated his call for a phased pullout of U.S. troops from Iraq and strongly backed a strong U.S. relationship with Israel.
Hmm. Can these views be reconciled? Perhaps if the pullout goes through Tehran . . ..
UPDATE: Ah, I couldn't find this, but a helpful reader sent it -- it's the Iraq Study Group "hybrid" proposal . . . .
