Say, About That Afghanistan Surge Troop Withdrawl…..


Remember when Mr. Obama said that his surge of troops for the war that was not a “stupid war” would end by July 2011? Yeah, how’s that working out?

Military leaders and President Obama’s civilian advisers are girding for battle over the size and pace of the planned pullout of U.S. troops from Afghanistan this summer, with the military seeking to limit a reduction in combat forces and the White House pressing for a withdrawal substantial enough to placate a war-weary electorate.

Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top allied commander in Afghanistan, has not presented a recommendation on the withdrawal to his superiors at the Pentagon, but some senior officers and military planning documents have described the July pullout as small to insignificant, prompting deep concern within the White House.

At a meeting of his war cabinet this month, Obama expressed displeasure with such characterizations of the withdrawal, according to three senior officials with direct knowledge of the session. “The president made it clear that he wants a meaningful drawdown to start in July,” said one of the officials, who, like the others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal discussions.

So, once again, Obama’s mouth seems to be passing checks his body can’t cash. Expect his base to ramp up their protests if the troops aren’t…..huh? The Left’s war protests basically ended when Obama took office? Weird.

Meanwhile, Obama’s Libyan adventure sees CIA agents on the ground, directing air strikes and meeting the rebels, whoever they are. This is super secret information, and, hey, isn’t that how the Vietnam War ramped up?
