Posted on 05/07/2009 7:12:38 PM PDT by Liam2007
Rep. Barbara Lee wants the Obama administration to study ways to end the war in Afghanistan, even though President Obama and his Cabinet were meeting this week with Afghan President Hamid Karzai to discuss how to escalate the battle against the Taliban in that country.
The California Democrat, one of the most anti-war and liberal members of the House, offered an amendment Thursday to a war funding bill to request a study by the end of the year from the administration on ways to get out of Afghanistan.
She eventually withdrew the amendment, but not before she aired her concerns that the United States is moving "deeper in Afghanistan" without an exit strategy -- echoing lawmakers' concerns during the height of the Iraq war about that military operation, which is now being scaled back.
Lee said the approach to Afghanistan is "hopelessly flawed" and that the U.S. should have an exit strategy to "minimize our losses." She complained that the $94 billion emergency spending bill for Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan "favors the military and combat over diplomacy."

Excellent! Couldn't agree more! Lets go after the Taliban 100% - after all, they sheltered and supported the people behind the 9/11 attacks. So lets finish this off by finishing them off...

You mean we’ve found a leftist who isn’t happy with Obama? She wins the Pop Ingrate Award.
Kill all the Taliban, in both Afghanistan and Pakistan. All their Al Qaeda buddies that you can find too.
But do it quickly, before the bastids get hold of Pakistan's nukes.
Even more dopey dopes.
