Obama runs war on his own for politics – no military input

Obama is so infallible he doesn’t need to consult the military about the war. It’s the politics that matter to Obama, not the troops, not America, just Obama. Can we afford four more years of his DUHplomacy?


From New York Times:

“The key decisions had essentially been made already when Gen. David H. Petraeus, in his last months as commander in Afghanistan, arrived in Washington with a set of options for the president that called for a slow withdrawal of surge troops. He wanted to keep as many troops as possible in Afghanistan through the next fighting season, with a steep drop to follow. Mr. Obama concluded that the Pentagon had not internalized that the goal was not to defeat the Taliban. He said he “believed that we had a more limited set of objectives that could be accomplished by bringing the military out at a faster clip,” an aide reported.” [emphasis added]
