Obama says the US has “Fallen Short of the Ideal’ in Afghanistan and Weekend Links!

by Kate on January 12, 2013

While meeting with the worthless Afghan President, Hamid Karsai, President iWonTwice said the U.S. has fallen “short of the ideal” in Afghanistan. Here’s the video:




Obama went on to say that America has achieved some measure of success in Afghanistan:

“Did we achieve our central goal? And have we been able, I think, to shape a strong relationship with a responsible Afghan government that is willing to cooperate with us to make sure that it is not a launching pad for future attacks against the United States? We have achieved that goal. We are in the process of achieving that goal. And for that, I think we have to thank our extraordinary military, intelligence and diplomatic teams, as well as the cooperation of the Afghan government and the Afghan people.”

Seriously? The troops did not fall short. YOU, President iWonTwice and the greedy, clueless politicians are the ones that tied our troop’s hands and let them down. Troops everywhere say that we won the fights but you made it impossible to win the war! Your pathetic administration will go down in history as one devoid of cash, morals, truth, ideas, courage, discipline, patriotism, faith, and frankly, anything else that matters to decent Americans.
