Obama rejects all troop options in Afghanistan. The “experts” profess surprise, but if an armchair blogger like me could see it coming, how expert are they? Look, this is really simple: if the One adds troops, he infuriates the left nuts and makes the war his. If he pulls everybody out and Afghanistan returns to a Taliban terrorist training site, he gets every normal American mad. If he continues the status quo and everything falls apart – which it will – he can continue to blame Bush for getting us into the mess to begin with.
And so that’s what he’ll do.
