Flashback to 2002: Barack Obama doesn't support a strategy of preemptive strikes when Bush is President

George Bush got authorization from Congress, but State Senator Barack Obama  didn't think a strategy of preemptive strikes set a good precedent. President Obama seems willing to make full use of this precedent now. This must be some more of that Obama evolution thing.

Zoom to bout the 1:50 mark if you are in a hurry.

It is interesting how closely related the two decisions are. Iraq used chemical weapons against their own people. So, has Syria. WMD is the driving factor in both decisions.
