The Dow didn't drop 20% on Friday, it's just that it has dropped a cumulative 20% since its last peak. That's a big deal, but not nearly as big a deal as a one-day 20% drop.

“consult with some of our closest friends and allies.”

It's been a while since President Hussein was a friend or ally, so if Iraq is now a closest friend or ally, perhaps Bush got it right?

Of course if one follows the link one sees something a little different; "Obama had said earlier that he would go to Iraq and Afghanistan this summer, as well. No mention was made of those countries in yesterday's announcement" [emphasis added]
