What looks to be bi-partisan at first glance, Obama’s leaked plans for agreement to send 34,000 more troops to General McChrystal, is in reality, political window dressing.
It comes with triggers (“off ramps”) that will automatically end the US involvement in prevention of the Taliban and Al Qaeda from retaking Afghanistan and making it their base of operation for their Islamic War of World Wide Terror on all Infidels… specifically, their Islamic War on the United States and her allies, Great Britain, France, and Israel.
In reports provided to McClatchy from US Officials from either the White House or the Pentagon or both, Obama has apparently crafted his own personal exit strategy in order to dodge personal responsibility for a US surrender in Afghanistan.
Further, US Officials said the Obama announcement of the Afghan Decision is scheduled for December 1, 2009, but was made some time ago. This begs the question… what political advantage was it to Obama to delay announcement of the Afghan War Decision? Did it have anything to do with ObamaCare support by Blue Dog Democrats in the House and the Senate? If so what is the worth of a US Soldier’s life when life and death decisions of troops in the field hinge on passing Domestic Policy Legislation?
The U.S. officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the issue publicly and because, one official said, the White House is incensed by leaks on its Afghanistan policy that didn’t originate in the White House.
The administration’s plan contains “off-ramps,” points starting next June at which Obama could decide to continue the flow of troops, halt the deployments and adopt a more limited strategy or “begin looking very quickly at exiting” the country, depending on political and military progress, one defense official said.
“We have to start showing progress within six months on the political side or military side or that’s it,” the U.S. defense official said.
and it goes on to say…
The administration’s protracted deliberations have escalated into open warfare between McChrystal and his supporters and advocates of a more limited strategy led by Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel that often played out in dueling leaks to news organizations.
It is clear, I believe, that Obama wants to have his cake and to also eat it at the same time.
He does not want to fight a war on terror as he promised the Majority of Americans to get himself elected… and he does not want to take responsibility for surrender either.
Thus, he has constructed himself ‘OFF RAMPS’ to place the crux of ending the US Fight against Al Qaeda on a document created for him by others…
Obama, We the People HIRED YOU to make the call yourself, and to take responsibility for YOUR Decisions …and regardless of what kind of slight of hand mumbo jumbo BS you come up with for appeasing the Radical Leftists, of which they consider you a member, You Will Be the President Who Surrendered To Al Qaeda.. Bank on it Pal!
