Obama Controversy?

The corporate media is buzzing with the latest "controversy". Check out what Reuters has to say:

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Barack Obama's presidential campaign is signalling more flexibility on his pledge to quickly pull U.S. troops out of Iraq if elected as part of a move toward the political centre.

Obama's emerging shift of nuance on Iraq, the signature issue that helped him defeat Democrat rival Hillary Clinton to win his party's presidential nomination, comes as he prepares to make his first trip to Iraq."

All right, can someone please explain to me what the controversy is? Obama is telling the world that he is willing to tweak his plan to end the war in iraq by responding to objective conditions on the ground. He's NOT saying he's not going to end the war. Maybe I'm wrong, but basically he's saying that he's not some idiot like Bush who "stay's the course" in spite of reality, reason, logic, or even the wishes of the people of his nation.
