Skip to comments.Bob Woodward book details Obama battles with advisers over exit plan for Afghan war
Posted on 09/22/2010 11:17:24 AM PDT by therightliveswithus
President Obama urgently looked for a way out of the war in Afghanistan last year, repeatedly pressing his top military advisers for an exit plan that they never gave him, according to secret meeting notes and documents cited in a new book by journalist Bob Woodward.
Frustrated with his military commanders for consistently offering only options that required significantly more troops, Obama finally crafted his own strategy, dictating a classified six-page "terms sheet" that sought to limit U.S. involvement, Woodward reports in "Obama's Wars," to be released on Monday.

THIS IS A UNDISCRIBABLY DISGRACEFUL CIC.
Are ANY of you ready to see your Son/Daughter/Wife/Husband die so *(*%&^$&^(^Zero doesn’t lose the Dum Party.
BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW.
NONE of the generals could come up with a plan that satisfied Obama, so Obama wrote his own plan???????
We’re in trouble; big trouble. This was LBJ’s biggest failing—he thought he could execute the Vietnam war better than the military.
Hey Bobby? Where was he born?
Can’t wait to read about it in your book. The documentation alone is going to be a real pleasure to see and read.
What a fresh breath of blown smoke this book will be found to be. Smile Obama. You’re getting the full treatment here.
Why doesnt Bob Woodward do some real reporting and question Obama on his birth certificate or the fact that there are no records, school marks, no anything to his history, except radicalism? Mr. Prize reporter is typical of what now passes for journalism he doesnt realize it (or maybe he does!) but he has another Richard Nixon on his hands who is covering things up. So what does Woodward now establishment paparazzi reporter do? Nothing. The real reporters work for Andrew Briebart. Woodward works for Obama.
If this is not treason I do not know what is!
What sad is the left and the media will just laugh it off!
The Blacks and Hispanic will not read it and because of this incompetent it is their children who are being killed!
What pi***** me off is that this is a UN mission....the same UN that invoked a conditional surrender in Iraq. To those nations that do stand with us...Thank you.
