Petraeus: Military Was NEVER Consulted on Afghan Withdrawal

xxx
Here's a brief video from General Petraeus' confirmation hearing this week.  In it, Sen. McCain draws him out on this disturbing fact: military never consulted on Obama's misguided and publicly-stated withdrawal deadline for US forces in Afghanistan... in effect a long, drawn-out surrender.

The plan basically amounted to a diktat from the WH,  a purely political decision- shedding much light on General McChrystal's statements and behavior. Obviously victory has little -or nothing- to do with Obama's plans and priorities... he still seems disappointed that we won in Iraq:


Now check-out a concise must-read how such ill-informed, politicized, and irresponsible decision-making by big-spending-lib LBJ cost us victory in Vietnam... numerous unsettling parallels drawn between that war and what General Petraeus is now facing in Afghanistan at Conservative Perspective -here-

Now that General Petraeus is running the show, I'm wondering how long before more head butting begins? Obamhole can't keep firing generals...

Unless he wants a military coup... not that I'm advocating anything of the sort, of course!

I pretty much figured that there was no military basis for Obama's withdrawal date. But the Hufffpo readers were pleased.

RR, Thanks for the link and agree with your summarry as well.

Well, of course the military wasn't consulted. This administration never consults anyone who actually knows what they're doing.

Obama playing politics with the lives of our heroes is very disturbing to say the least. Let us just hope that General Petraeus was given the okay to change the strategy and win the war.

What The Lonely Conservative said. The man despises everything this country stands for, so, of course, he doesn't want America to win - in anything.
