Let’s see, so if the President’s Afghanistan plan works perfectly (always the case there) and the President does not cave in or compromise (he never does!), then we can expect to target the “hand over” of Afghanistan to Afghan forces sometime in 2014, with US troops expected to remain there well in 2015 or beyond.
This turns out to be a great campaign re-election slogan:
FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!
Basically I blame the President to forcing me to agree with Glenn Garvin.
Even worse, Glenn Garvin now appears to agree with Glenn Greenwald.
Worser yet, Obama loyalists now find themselves agreeing with this esteemed crew:
“The United States must see this effort in Libya through to its conclusion,” reads the letter, signed by conservatives including Liz Cheney, William Kristol, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz and R. James Woolsey Jr.
Obama partisans, Liz Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz(!) — bet you didn’t see that coming way back in 2008.
In other news, Justice Scalia is a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
(But this we already knew.)
