Obama Didn't Believe In His Afghan War Strategy; Sent Troops To Their Deaths

How can you not believe in your war strategy and send troops into harm's way? For Barack Obama it's not a problem.

In startling revelations in former Secretary of Defense Bob Gates' new book Duty, Gates writes that Barack Obama never believed in his war strategy for Afghanistan, that the war was strictly for political purposes and that everything was done in the Obama White House for political purposes and to enhance Obama's image, not the sacrifice of our troops.
Gates wrote in his book: “As I sat there, I thought: The president doesn’t trust his commander, can’t stand Karzai, doesn’t believe in his own strategy and doesn’t consider the war to be his… For him, it’s all about getting out" and that the President was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail.”

Gates also revealed that Obama's and Hillary Clinton's opposition to the surge in Iraq under George Bush was for political purposes. He was astonished at an exchange between Obama and Hillary before him and his staff: “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the [2007] surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary. . . The president conceded vaguely that opposition to the Iraq surge had been political. To hear the two of them making these admissions, and in front of me, was as surprising as it was dismaying.”

So, to Obama and Hillary, our brave men and women in uniform are nothing more than pawns for their political agendas and their lusts for power.

Gates wrote that what was most important for Obama was his image, not the troops or their sacrifice: "The controlling nature of the Obama White House and its determination to take credit for every good thing that happened while giving none to the career folks in the trenches who had actually done the work, offended Secretary Clinton as much as it did me."

Gates summed up Obama and his administration: "I felt that agreements with the Obama White House were good for only as long as they were politically convenient."

So, there it is. This President doesn't care about our troops or about the defense of our country, the only things he cares about are his political agenda and his image.

The word disgusting doesn't come close to describing this man.
