Without naming him, President Obama took a shot at former President Bush during his speech at the US Naval Academy Commencement in Annapolis, Maryland.
Obama said: “And today, this is the promise I make to you. It’s a promise that as long as I am your Commander-in-Chief, I will only send you into harm’s way when it is absolutely necessary, and with the strategy and the well-defined goals, the equipment and the support that you need to get the job done. (Applause.) This includes the job of bringing the Iraq war to a responsible end and pursuing a new comprehensive strategy to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat al Qaeda and its allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan.” (Applause.)
