Among the many, many unforced errors made by Obama since Jan 20, this has the be the biggest and the worst.

Well, General Obama has certainly come 180 degrees from his campaign pronouncements on the subject.

Returning Afghanistan to the Taliban.

Yeah......that makes sense.

May God protect us from the dangerous pretender in the White House!

This was the plan all along. Obama said a few ago that ‘Victory’ wasn’t necessarily the goal in Afghanistan.

This could hurt him, because he also said this war was ‘necessary.’

Jennifer put down the election talking point in her report...showing the testimony of a US official stating that they KNEW the election would be fraught with corruption before the sent troops in April.

Is this a bad joke? This would be an absolute sell out. Obama campaigned long and hard up and down this country stating that he would do everything to win this, even invade Pakistan.

I know Obama is a leftist but I think this report will be denied.

We have allies fighting there as well, Obama asked them to commit more troops.

Hard to belive this can be true.

Obama is first and foremost a social engineer. His decisions are not based on facts and circumstances but are based on his socialistic or neo-communistic ideology.

Strange eh? Dubyah pulled off good elections in Iraq, but community organizing Obathing could not. Obathing thinks that democracy should not be "imposed."

Well looks like we are leaving Afghanistan. If so, the Taliban will now be Russia's problem......unless they attack us here at home.

I look forward to our soldiers coming home. They are needed to get rid of the Obama Junta at the polls.

For years, Democrats have been saying that Iraq was the wrong war, and Afghanistan was the right war. They said that we should have focused on Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. They said Bush took his eye off the ball by going into Iraq. They said Afghanistan is a war worth fighting because Al Qaeda attacked us on Sept. 11th, whereas Iraq didn’t attack us.

Can you imagine if after Pearl Harbor, if we decided to pull up short of victory against Japan??????? Sept. 11th was this generation’s Pearl Harbor. Now recently we’ve been hearing Vietnam analogies with Afghanistan, which perhaps is leading us to give up there. We’ll see.

There can be no doubt that baby boy obozo is unstable and bent on every means of destruction of America he can find.

There will be no congress when he gets through.

No matter how you feel about the war, few are going to sit still for settling for an L to a country that doesn’t possess an air force or a tank.

And Barry will be in office long enough to witness and cherish such. I am sure it will be a proud moment that he will utilize in the upcoming 2012 elections to his favor. /s

Leave the "real" war on terrorism that the leftists moonbats claimed was a necessary war while the tyrant Saddam Hussein was being toppled?

Gosh, I'm really getting to think that the village idiot in the white house is playing politics at the cost of American lives.

No way. I don’t believe it. This would be political suicide. Don't worry, they will find a white guy to take the fall for this. Pay attention to McCrystal or Gates, also Petraeus.

I happen to think this recent arrest of this Afghani National with 'ties to Al-Qaeda' may be a bit trumped up and even Kabuki theater.

Obama's administration will use this case to say that Afghanistan is a 'Law Enforcement problem' and that we've been doing it wrong by taking the fight to them.

Obama should either have the courage to fight the war over there or ... well, he obviously does not have that courage, so I’m inclined to agree that it is futile to sacrifice our troops if they’re going to be sitting ducks, hampered by restrictions and lack of resources.

There we go. Be a typical democrat, Cut and run, then watch the people die. Its okay you know because the MSM won’t cover all the deaths as a result, they just won’t report it.

No big deal. Good, lets go home and pretend it never happened and tell ourselves how great we are and how much we care about folks.

Leftist thinking is so easy, no remorse and all.

While this might please the left wing loons of the Democratic party, Barry's credibility should be shot as during the campaign he kept harping that Bush had dropped the ball and Afghanistan is were we should be fighting etc. Thank God we did not have this kind of Presidential leadership in the past as we would have withdrawn Union troops from combat after Bull Run and capitulated to the Japanese after Guadalcanal.
