If you were hoping President Obama would show leadership and order an early redeployment of U.S. troops out of Afghanistan following the the massacre of 16 Afghan civilians by an American soldier, you will be sadly disappointed.
Warbling meaningless rhetoric and sounding every bit as boneheaded as his hero Ronald Reagan, President Obama said:
“What we don’t want to do is to do it in a way that is just a rush for the exits. We’ve got to make sure that the Afghans can protect their borders and prevent al-Qaeda from coming back, and so we’re going to have to do it in a responsible way.”
President Obama now has his very own My Lai massacre to explain to the American voters in next fall’s presidential debates. Good luck, Barry.
