Re "We should finish the job" (Letters Page A17, June 27) Letter writer James W. Rushford says blaming the Iraq war debacle on President George W/ Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney is baloney. And through incredibly perplexing logic blames Barack Obama, even though as a state senator from Illinois, Barack Obama stood in the Federal Plaza of Chicago in October 2002 and issued this forewarning to Bush, warning that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and strong international support would only fan the flames of the Middle East. -- Richard Nano, Roseville
