Iraq Withdrawal and Darfur

McCain criticized Obama for wanting to set a date for withdrawal from Iraq, but that is what the Iraqi government and the Bush administration are essentially doing right now.

On Darfur, Obama said we should be providing logistical support to the UN/AU force. The Bush administration has done that. As for setting up a no-fly zone, it may not be as easy as Obama suggests and some aid groups are worried about the prospect.
