    Indeed. There never even was a war against those actually responsible for 9/11, the Saudis, enabled by elements within the American government. Instead, support for the Wahhabi Saudi regime was maintained. The 9/11 attack would hardly have occurred were it not for Wahhabism, yet America has continued to subsidize it. The U.S. military toppled a major check on Tehran's power and then proceeded to bog itself down in Afghanistan. Osama and other terrorists originally funded, armed and trained by the CIA remain at large. As a result of Uncle Sam's latest round of kicking over beehives abroad, millions of people who were not previously receptive to recruitment by Islamist terrorists are now. The likelihood of another 9/11 is thereby increased. Mission failed, unless the mission is ongoing war for profit.

    Yep, and no president should make a decision until he's had time to eat some turkey and watch some football after a vacation in Asia.

    It took ten meetings for Obama to do this. Incompetence is everywhere in this administration.

    This surge will not work, these people are not the same people that live in Iraq! These people are uneducated, they rely on religion to guide them, not government, not......well, I don't want to bash these poor ignorant people, but they are cavemen, they really are.

    Bring our troops home!

    Obama promises to 'finish the job' in Afghanistan

    Signaling an imminent decision on Afghanistan troop levels, President Barack Obama said Tuesday he intends to "finish the job" and destroy terrorist networks in the region.

    Indeed. There was talk of creating a global purchasing chain for Afghanistan opium for legitimate uses that could in theory provide economic development revenues in a legitimate way. That appears to have died several years back.

    I think he just is looking for any petty reason to bash Obama. He's clearly going out of his way by leaps and bounds to completely ignore how all we've done is replace Bush with Obama and the same underlying problems of Afghanistan are still there. Apparently with less than a year in office, Obama deserves huge amounts of blame for the same problems that Bush never dealt with in seven years.

    And people wonder why I have little more then contempt for hyperpartisans.
