ASHINGTON: The Obama Administration has declined to set a deadline for withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, arguing that the situation there is different from that of Iraq and 9/11 plotters are still holed up in the Af-Pak region and planning attack against the US.
"We have a different situation in Afghanistan. It is actually the place that - Afghanistan and Pakistan - where the folks who attacked us on 9/11 are holed up and plotting against us still," David Axelrod, Senior Advisor to the US President, told the NBC news channel in an interview.

The list, ping
Then how about letting the troops take the gloves off, Obama?
So where are all the war protestors? Where is code pink, etc? Gone, that’s where they are. They were never protesting the war, they were just protesting against Bush with the wars as a pretext.
A little ironic.
Of course. Cindy was just following her marching orders from Medea, who was following orders from Fidel and Chavez.
Have you heard her name once since Bush left office?
Code Pink and Cindy ain’t gonna be so happy about this! They will be obnoxious and camp out at the Obama compound for years... /s
Yes. She showed up in Martha’s Vinyard last week during O’s vacation. nobody payed attention. or cared. I didn’t.
Van Jones: "Now he tells me!"
Michael Savage put it best:
Republican bombs, bad. Democrat bombs, good.
Why is Axlerod popping up in 1/2 the stories I read about Obama, and all over TV. What is his official & unofficial positions? He is freaking me out.
He is sort of like the "puppet master".
Just call him Lyndon Baines Obama.
It’s a Quagmire.
The war in Afghanistan is already lost.
And Mr. Obama is sending in tens of thousands more troops.
So are the anti-war protestors going to be running around carrying signs that say OBAMA = HITLER, OBAMA IS THE REAL TERRORIST, pictures of Obama as a vampire with blood dripping off his fangs and will they hang Obama in effigy?
NO? I didn’t think so.
They could give a rat's behind about our military. They are all about Miranda rights for terrorists and don't shoot unless you call for approval and are shot at first. The thing that makes you the most sick is the rising numbers of dead and wounded of recent. The result of the Hack in Chief's military policy.
WITHDRAW THE TROOPS NOW FROM AFGHANISTAN!!
( sarc. off)
I know some military members who were in Iraq. They cannot stand our govt and feel terrible when they see people enlisting these days. Like you said, the government just does not care.
The American people care about them. I believe that alone is what continues to give them the heart to do what they do.
