Mr. Gibbs says, "I don't think that there's any doubt as candidate Obama said that adding 20,000 men and women into Iraq would improve the security situation..."
Perhaps, Mr. Gibbs, but he also said:
“I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse.” - Senator Barrak Obama in response to the PSOTUS. (January 10, 2007 on MSNBC)
So I officially have doubts, Mr. Gibbs.
Jonn Lilyea at This Ain't Hell said about the exchange, "We already know the answers, but the Obama Administration is clearly frightened by the answers."
Update: Here is the video of the President and what he said as a candidate:
