The Obamessiah doesn’t like any of the options that his advisors have presented him with regard to Afghanistan. His biggest gripe about these options is that they each require him to make a decision. Making a decision is not something the Obamessiah is comfortable doing.
Obama’s stance comes as his own ambassador in Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, is voicing strong dissent about a U.S. troop increase, according to a second administration official.
Eikenberry’s misgivings center on a concern that bolstering the American presence in Afghanistan could make the country more reliant on the U.S., not less. He expressed them in forcefully worded cables to Washington just ahead of Obama’s latest war meeting Wednesday.
How about doing something for our troops that are in harms way over there? Oh that’s right, you’re on the other team, aren’t you?
Thank goodness Hitlery threw her $0.02 in for good measure.
Funny how our government is only concerned about these things when applied to foreign countries. “Corruption, lack of transparency, poor governance and absence of the rule of law,” is exactly what we have in Washington DC. I hope Afghanistan doesn’t decide to pull its troops out of the US as a consequence.
