Anti-War Left Unhappy with Obama Already

The anti-war movement that invested so much of its demonstration time in getting Barack Obama elected are now upset with the president-elect because he seems to be populating his national security team with people who supported the move to topple Saddam Hussein and are generally, well, national security oriented.

They wonder how he could drift so far away from what he promised them. I'm betting that as the president-elect is being briefed on the true state of national security issues, he is starting to realize just how stupid an immediate unilateral withdrawal from Iraq truly is. As he becomes acclimated to facts that the media won't report and his far left supporters simply refuse to believe, Obama will have to be careful about which promises he intends to keep. His best bet will be to jettison the kooks early.
