Friday marks six years to the day since the US invaded Iraq. Wisconsin peace activist Todd Dennis fires off at the White House's policy. As President of the Madison Chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War , Dennis says people think the "war is over but were going to be there at least for another year and a half."
He's referring to President Obama's timeline which calls for complete Iraq troop withdrawal by the end of 2011. Dennis sees the announcement as another broken promise in a long line of backpedaling by Obama. The Naval veteran says on the campaign trail, Obama changed his stance from immediate withdrawal to 16 months then, after being sworn in, the figure became 19 months.
The anti-war advocate also bashed Obama's idea to make veterans use their own private health insurance, a plan that was dropped after public outcry.
Iraq Veterans Against the War also opposes the war in Afghanistan and would like to see reparations for citizens in both countries.
