Isn’t it interesting that we’re still in Iraq, and Obama is stepping back from his 2011 withdrawal date for Afghanistan, yet we hear nothing from the anti-war crowd in the U.S. No one is camped outside Obama’s residence in protest of the war. There are no burnings of Obama in effigy. Not a peep. The sheeple on the left aren’t really anti-war, they’re just anti-republican….a movement with no real principals, values, or morals. Sheep.
The Obama administration has decided to walk away from what it once touted as key deadlines in the Afghanistan war in an effort to de-emphasize the president’s pledge that he would begin withdrawing U.S. forces in July 2011, administration and military officials said Tuesday.
The new policy will be on display next week during a NATO conference in Lisbon, Portugal, where the administration hopes to introduce a timeline that calls for the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO forces from Afghanistan by 2014, according to three senior officials and others speaking anonymously as a matter of policy. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has said Afghan troops could provide their security by then.
The Pentagon also has decided not to announce specific dates for handing security responsibility for several Afghan provinces to local officials and instead intends to work out a more vague definition of transition…
Suddenly Obama understands the stupidity of announcing to your enemy when you plan to leave. Things look a whole lot different when you’re the one in charge I guess. Too bad more Congress critters don’t understand this.
