    there have been sixteen zillion arguments about the merits of the Iraq War. This is a debate about the relative expenditures associated with that effort.

    Are you really submitting that as logic?

    Obama could not end the war? Of course he could. He killed more than Bush.

    They know for a fact that $60 billion of cold, hard cash is unaccounted for.

    It is ALL of our war. Ask any member in the service whose war it is. Sometimes republicans like to forget it is their war as well. Undoubtedly, they own a far larger proportion of the responsibility for the costs.

    Obama killed more than Bush. No one forced him.
