BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan (AP) -- On a swift, secretive trip to the war zone, President Barack Obama declared Tuesday night that after years of sacrifice the U.S. combat role in Afghanistan is winding down just as the war in Iraq has ended. "There's a light on the horizon," he told U.S. troops on the one-year anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death.

After signing an agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai setting post-war promises and expectations, Obama addressed Americans back home in the midst of his endeavor to win re-election as U.S. president and commander in chief.

He just signed up a whole country full of Democrat voters, and we're stuck paying for it.

George Stephanopoulos said that this war is the longest in our history.
Obama came on and said that, "Three years ago, the tide of the war began to change."

They have no shame at all. They just lie and lie and lie.

So, he’s on his “I got OBL tour”.

I’m surprised he’s invited anywhere. He must enjoy being the t*rd in the punchbowl.

The bastard flies in and back out of the country under cover of darkness in attempt to impress the American voting public. In the meantime our young men are stuck there for an indeterminate period of time, being pot-shotted daily by suicidal fanatics.

Way to go, CIC (or is that POS?)

This was the forgotten verse.

>"Is it shaped like a mushroom?"

Pockystain is right next door, and they have nukes. It's not like they were taking billions of our money, while hiding OBL.

Our troops are massed in one big easy nuke target.

This would give her Fuhrer reason and need for his private civilian military.


His lies make me sick. When he tells the truth it is scary.

That's nơt a horizon. It is a tunnel and we are scrambling back out of the mouth of it.

Obama in Afghanistan, sees 'light on the horizon'

Listen, Hussein... That light is the silent majority, the "conservative train," headed in your direction. In that tunnel you created for yourself, there's no way out!

Good luck!
