In the August 8 edition of his column, Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz noted Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) August 6 statement that he "never called for an invasion of Pakistan" in his August 1 foreign policy speech and that "the misreporting that was done needs to be cleared up." Kurtz described Obama as "blaming the media" and responded: "I sure didn't see anyone reporting that Obama wanted to invade Pakistan." Kurtz continued: "I read that he would be willing to conduct raids against al-Qaeda without necessarily getting permission from Pakistan's sovereign government." In fact, numerous media outlets have reported that Obama, in the August 1 speech, stated that he was willing to "invade Pakistan."
