Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) mentioned the war in Iraq in his victory speech after receiving the Democratic nomination for president on June 3, 2008. ” ‘We must be as careful getting out of Iraq as we were careless getting in,’ Obama said. ‘But start leaving, we must. It’s time for Iraqis to take responsibility for their future.’ ”
