Sen. Barack Obama Summary

Tonight, presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama.



Jon begins tonight reporting on the impatience President Bush is trying to quell about the Iraq War and the concerns over the Iraqi Parliament's vacation time in August due to the 130 degree heat in Iraq. Jon goes to Senior Baghdad Correspondent Rob Riggle who's in Iraq in a segment called "Operation Macho Kick-Ass". Riggle shows us some clips of American troops wishing the Iraqi Parliament a good vacation as they do menial tasks around Iraq.



Finally, Jon reports on the complex intricacies that is American foreign policy in a segment called "America To The Rescue". For example, invading Iraq has strengthened Iran, creating fear in Saudi Arabia, leading to the U.S. selling $20 billion of weapons to the Saudi's, thus intimidating the Israeli's who are afraid of Hamas which is supported by the Saudi's, causing the U.S. to increase military aid to Israel by 25% or $30 billion over 10 years. This smart foreign policy experience is nothing new. As Jon shows us from back in 1990, the U.S. helped liberate Kuwait, which was invaded by Iraq, who was armed by the U.S. to fight Iran, leading also to American troops being stationed in Saudi Arabia to alleviate fears that Saddam might strike there, pissing off Osama bin Laden, who was fighting the Russians in Afghanistan with weapons given to him by the U.S.
