...Senator Obama's comments might have had one more positive effect. They have changed the center of military conversations to Pakistan, rather than Iran. This is exactly right. Think about it, why on God's green earth would we consider going into Iran - another country where Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden are not, when we full well know they are in Pakistan? If we should take military action anywhere, it should be against Al Qaeda and it should be in Pakistan.
To argue for military strikes against Iran when you're not even willing to take military strikes against the people who attacked us on 9/11 sounds absurd. That's because it is absurd.
