White House: Leaving Afghanistan not an option
WASHINGTON – The White House said Monday that President Barack Obama is not considering a strategy for Afghanistan that would withdraw U.S. troops from the eroding war there.
. . . . . . .
Obama has invited a bipartisan group of congressional leaders to the White House on Tuesday to confer about the war. He said the administration would brief leaders from both parties and key committee chairmen and would seek their opinions.
Phi Beta Iota: Not only is the White House itself out of touch with reality on Afghanistan, but inviting a “bipartisan” collection of the same appartchiks that allowed us to go into two elective wars and to bankrupt the nation twice over is hardly the way to get coherent strategic advice.
