Barack Obama — who is nearly one year into his first four-year term — has supposedly decided to randomly pick a three-year time table for ending his proposed escalation in Afghanistan out of thin air for no reason whatsoever…
President Obama intends to conclude the Afghanistan war and withdraw most U.S. troops within three years, according to senior administration officials.
Obama is sending 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan and ordering military officials to get the reinforcements there within six months, White House officials told CNN Tuesday.
Jeeze, I sure hope the bringing the troops home in 2012 doesn't get too much in the way of Obama's re-election campaign.*
* Don't worry. It won't. Those troops will be there for at least another decade or so.
