POLITICO #ThrowbackThursday: President Bush announcing war in Iraq

Posted on June 19, 2014 

Every week the Sun Herald publishes a #ThrowbackThursday. We obviously didn't invent #ThrowbackThursday, we have just utilized the global social media posting to retell stories from yesteryear through old photos from our archives.

Today's #ThrowbackThursday by Lauren Walck looks at the shrimping season.

In the wake of President Barack Obama's announcement that up to 300 military advisers will be sent to Iraq, POLITICO's embedded #ThrowbackThursday is especially appropriate: On March 19, 2003 President George W. Bush announced the start of the war in Iraq.
