President Obama is inclined to send only as many more U.S. troops to Afghanistan as are needed to keep Al Qaeda at bay, a senior administration official said. The official also added that the president is prepared to accept some Taliban involvement in Afghanistan's political future, reiterating what Obama said in March. The assessment comes from an official who has been involved in the president's discussions with his war council about Afghanistan strategy.
Sending enough troops to keep Al Qaida "at bay" is a recipe for a never-ending bloodbath. What utter fools the people were who voted for this empty-suited narcissistic Marxist windbag. This man isn't fit to tie the boot laces of the military personnel he is supposedly "leading". I never thought I'd see the USA become even more of a laughingstock than it was under Clinton.
