    Good look on this post. This really flew under the MSM radar.

    U.S. troops have been in Afghanistan for 10 years. Now, Obama wants the troops to remain in Afghanistan for an additional four years. According to U.S. intelligence reports, Al Qaeda has been defeated in Afghanistan. It is time for the U.S. to leave that failed state. Instead of squandering financial resources abroad, we should use them for education, jobs, housing, etc. here at home.

    NATO adopts transition plan for Afghan war

    LISBON – President Obama said Saturday he was confident that a U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan would begin in July and that “the objective assessment is that we have made progress” in the war effort.

    We are in a better place now than we were a year ago,” Obama said in anticipation of next month’s promised White House review of the surge strategy he announced last December. He said Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of the U.S.-led coalition, had begun “planning and mapping” areas where security conditions would allow a drawdown.

    Obama spoke at the end of a two-day NATO summit at which the coalition agreed to start turning parts of Afghanistan over to Afghan security control this spring, in a transition to be completed by the end of 2014, and secured Russia’s promise to cooperate in a Europe-based missile-defense program.

    Our President gets it. He has such a vision. He completely understands the world and our place in it. It’s not just America but the world. That’s what these clowns don’t get. We are part of a world. Not just the U. S.

      You’re welcome. i can’t think of anyone else I’d rather listen to right now, but the POTUS. The noise and foolishness of the media and the scallywags is at a fever pitch.
