Afghanistan Surge is Over
Posted by madjillmom on October 1, 2012
Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta announce about two weeks ago that the surge in Afghanistan was over and that there are only pre-surge levels of troops on the ground. Announcing to Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and the Haqqani Network that there is a limited time to kill the remaining troops, seems a strange thing to me. So, the Obama Administration is announcing the surge is over, but they aren’t announcing the surge worked. It didn’t. This is mostly due to the fact that the surge was so greatly reduced from the amount that the Generals wanted. So it was a greatly reduced surge, costing lots of treasure and money, that really didn’t improve anything in Afghanistan.
If it had worked, PresBO would be running around patting himself on his back. Not happening. Only getting worse by the day. Remember, this is the war Obama chose to support.
