So, you know, I think that, have we achieved everything that some might have imagined us achieving in the best of scenarios? Probably not. You know, there's a human enterprise, and you know, you fall short of the ideal," said Obama.
The president went on to say that America has achieved some measure of success in Afghanistan, however. "Did we achieve our central goal? And have we been able, I think, to shape a strong

Dumbo’s Rules of Engagement made it impossible to carry out our mission successfully!
What a deal....
Nothing out of the ordinary here, just the usual belittle-America-after-election horseclinton.
Who’s fault is that? It sure as hell isn’t the military’s fault. The buffoons on Capitol Hill need to look in the mirror. They, and their toads in the “media” have killed more American military people than all of our enemies combined. We need to rewrite our laws that once a war is started, the first people to go are all of the politicians. They’d knock off their rules of engagement BS, quickly.
Starting in 2014 no news will come out of Afghanistan.
“We need to rewrite our laws that once a war is started, the first people to go are all of the politicians.”
Some of them ARE aged/infirm... we should send their children first.
No surprise. We’ve fallen far short of the ideal in Washington.
Marxist, Mooslim, Kenyan, Steaming pantload.....
The byline of this administration
Yep. America fell short alright.....when they re-elected you!!!!!
Our Military fell short of nothing! Our Government that controls the Military has and will.
Success can only occur when success is wanted to be achieved.
This POTUS just told the world we are a failure. a blatent lie.
This arena should have been given to a General and told to clean house.
The Afghanistan Government and people did not want western ways and change. This should have been self evident, however they loved our money. O bama is the failure here and it is sad to see the lives wasted on a failed effort by the Boy King and his minions!
Who signs the EO to rid our Nation of a failed President!
Just about the time ya think the half-breed bastard can’t possibly be any more loathsome . . .

Hussein, you are not Reagan and you know it. You have no right to be there and you no it. Just leave already.
What a jackass. He can’t spin it into a win.
(I’d be curious to know whether that limp wristed, shifty-eyed sorry excuse for a Commander in Chief inspires any confidence among our men and women in uniform.....)
I have participated in funerals for KIA soldiers for the past 7 years. Doing @ 75. I have also been involved in numerous wounded warrior events. So I have had much contact with active duty military members from all branches of service. Rest assured that Obama is despised by the vast majority of the military.
