Since Obama has so much military experience, I'm sure it's the right call. tic

And I'm sure this plan has nothing to do with appeasing his base before the election next year. tic

Military leaders know Obama's decision is a disaster


Obama shifts from consensus to instincts on key calls

The Obama administration's top national security officials were gathered around the polished wooden table of the White House Situation Room to hear Gen. David H. Petraeus argue for a slow drawdown of U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The military needed time, he said, to secure the eastern part of the country as it had done in the south. President Obama quickly made clear his disagreement. More important, he said, was the administration's goal of shifting responsibility for the country's security to the Afghan government, which would let him bring home troops.

So, to hell with the experienced military.

And this article makes it sound like Obama alone made the call on bin Laden. I read enough to know he took a long time and it was a bit slower than a gut call and that Leon Panetta really made the decision for him. So, that is what the LA Times thinks is the decisiveness of Obama? OMG!


Obama to let generals handle the details on Afghanistan withdrawal

Vietnam again
Why to fight if we go away?
The one who will be the last dead or disabled soldier of this war?
How many days the kabul puppet government will resist in Kabul?
And the new boat people, what?.
