The debates were the disappointing part of Barack. He failed to defend his position and he lacked knowledge to reply to John McCain. Al-Qaeda had been driven back by the surge, but Al-Qaeda had made a terrible error. They had killed the people of Iraq like they were slaves. The Iraqi people were terrified of Al-Qaeda and stopped helping them. So when the surge happened the Iraqi people now gave information and whereabouts of Al-Qaeda to the coalition army. So it seems whoever the Iraqi people gave crucial information to had a huge advantage. Now the marines could find Al-Qaeda and kill them which was great timing for the surge. Obama let McCain get away with a half truth. The surge was a positive and proved effective and Obama was right not to argue that. Had Obama been following the war he would have known the real factor was how the Iraqi's turned on Al-Qaeda and started to support the coalition. McCain would have then been in the corner and not Obama. Both Obama and McCain lacked substance in these debates and it hurt them both.
