Feingold: Get Out Of Afghanistan?
And so it begins. It looks as though Obama is going to face a little test. Considering he's been failing at everything else, is there any way this ends up good for Obama? Or, good for the troops? And other voices are calling for more troops, not a timeline. It's dejavu, or back to the Bush years, all over again.
Let's hope this doesn't become a nightmare for Obama. We want him rested if he ever gets that 3 AM call. Though I suppose he could always pull Hillary from State and re-assign her to the switchboard. heh!
Also, I see liberal Sherrod Brown just got back from Afghanistan. Hmm.
Sen. Russ Feingold, D-WI, called on President Obama to announce a timetable for withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. "This is a strategy that is not likely to succeed," Sen. Feingold said about the troop buildup in Afghanistan. "After eight years, I am not convinced that pouring more and more troops into Afghanistan is a well thought out policy," said Feingold. The liberal Democrat said he has expressed his reservations with President Obama, Admiral Mullen, and others inside the administration and he says he has "never been convinced they have a good answer."
