Obama failing to focus on Iraq [Letter]

There are certainly hard choices in Iraq ("Hard choices in Iraq," June 16). Although you didn't mention it, the lack of foresight by the George W. Bush administration to have an "exit" strategy in this war is the main cause. President Barack Obama didn't help by not demanding a Status of Forces Agreement.

The big issue now is that Mr. Obama spends more time playing golf and fundraising than tending to his duties, but I am sure Valerie Jarrett is on top of this.
