Vice President Biden said today that the coalition forces in Afghanistan have largely arrested the Taliban momentum in key areas there. But he acknowledged that the gains are fragile and reversible.
Bidens comments came after a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai at the presidential palace in Kabul.
Biden emphasized the U.S. commitment to the Afghan government. We are not leaving if you don't want us to leave, he said.
The vice president said while there are many hard days that lie ahead, there is now a viable path going forward to the transition from US forces to Afghan security forces by 2014.
We are not leaving if you don’t want us to leave, he said.
How about, we’ll leave when our interests are satisfied.
Biden saying this with a straight face was the funniest part.
“Junior” is always good for a laugh!
Obama being crazy as a bed bug but Biden is just flat out spooky,has to be a padded cell waithing for him some place.
