Surprise, Surprise, Surprise, Afghanistan is Corrupt

Posted by madjillmom on October 19, 2009

While Pres. Obama was a new Senator, he was put in charge of a Senate subcommittee that was responsible for oversight in Afghanistan.  In his 143 days as a Senator not Running for President, he choose not to call a meeting of the subcommittee to discuss the situation in Afghanistan.  As Candidate Obama, he choose to call the war in Afghanistan the necessary war, in contrast to his opinion of the war in Iraq.  Now the administration is claiming that there is no way the President can make a decision about the troop levels because they do not know if they have a government in place that will be a proper partner for a surge in our forces.  It is “reckless”. Evidently, after  being President for nine months, they are just now figuring out that the government in Afghanistan is corrupt.  Evidently, it is OK to leave lower troop levels in place not working with the corrupt government.  Can someone say “Present”.
