Barack Obama showed a great deal of class at his farewell speech yesterday in Chicago. Chicago based marketing company for magazines and magazine publishers, ValueMags, was just as caught up in the speech as their fellow Americans. Twoexecutives attended the speech and said that the energy and the emotions flowing throughout the crowd was overwhelming.
Among many of Obama’s accomplishments, ValueMags researchers found that the most talked about accomplishments of the Obama administration were all related to war. For starters, the most talked about event of his 8 year mandate was when his armed forces team eliminated Osama Bin Laden. The mission was top secret and when the video footage was release, people were shocked. The terrorist that orchestrated the 9/11 attacks among many others, was shot and killed. For many hours prior and during the top secret mission, Obama was locked in a room with military strategists and many other key individuals planning and watching. The operation was deemed successful although there are many other influential and powerful leaders in ISIS and Al Qaeda.
Additionally, Obama and the United States armed forces ended the war in Iraq in 2011. The last troop left on December 8th, 2011 which was a relief for many individuals as well as the Iraqi forces after being trained by Americans to keep the peace.
Finally, Obama had also defused the war in Afghanistan. In the span of one year, Obama had brought home nearly three fourths of the troops that were there. Although the office is transitioning, if Trump continues on the same path, all American troops will be out of Afghanistan by next year.
