As reported in the Washington Post, The President was (and still is) looking for a way out of the war in Afghanistan, and continually pressing his top military advisers for an exit plan... That they never gave him, according to secret meeting notes and documents cited in a new book by journalist Bob Woodward.
Frustrated with his military commanders for consistently offering only options that required significantly more troops, Obama finally crafted his own strategy, dictating a classified six-page "terms sheet" that sought to limit U.S. involvement, Woodward reports in "Obama's Wars," to be released on Monday.
According to Woodward's meeting-by-meeting, memo-by-memo account of the 2009 Afghan strategy review, the president avoided talk of victory as he described his objectives....
Now this is not a real surprise, as the President has no stomach for a US victory.
Obama has been quote in saying the following: "This needs to be a plan about how we're going to hand it off and get out of Afghanistan, Everything we're doing has to be focused on how we're going to get to the point where we can reduce our footprint. It's in our national security interest. There cannot be any wiggle room."
(There's that reference again, 'footprint', so widely used in reference of 'carbon'.... and that its in our security interest...WTF...(See picture above... CLUELESS)
Obama rejected the military's request for 40,000 troops as part of an expansive mission that had no foreseeable end. "I'm not doing 10 years,"
(We wish you weren't doing 4, but that's another story)
Here is where it really opens up. Obama said "I'm not doing long-term nation-building. I am not spending a trillion dollars."
You spent a trillion on heathcare takeover, but not to defeat our enemy?.... (See picture above... CLUELESS)
According to Woodward's book, it portrays Obama and the White House as barraged by warnings about the threat of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil and confronted with the difficulty in preventing them.
Now, remember, Christmas Day, Fort Hood, New York City, 3 serious attempts, 1 deadly... But he didn't heed the WARNINGS! (See picture above... CLUELESS)
During an interview with Woodward in July, the president said, "We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger."
This ladies and Gentleman is the mind set of the liberal left. Instead of fighting our enemy on THEIR soil, it's seems to be OK with Obama that we can "Absorb another (and even bigger) terrorist attack" on OUR SOIL... and SOMEHOW we'll be stronger for it. (Once again, see picture above... CLUELESS)
Well Mr President, if they ever get a hold of a dirty bomb, we sure as HELL will be absorbing some radiation. (See picture above... CLUELESS)
Obama should be demoted and let the military brass oversee our war efforts. And that THEY shall report directly to "We the People"!
