From your cited source. Romney, "I think it's tragic." How is it out of context, hence the lie, because Romney used the adjective "precipitous" ?
Romney, Nov. 11, 2011: It is my view that the withdrawal of all of our troops from Iraq by the end of this year is an enormous mistake, and failing by the Obama administration. The precipitous withdrawal is unfortunate ó itís more than unfortunate, I think itís tragic. It puts at risk many of the victories that were hard won by the men and women who served there.
