October 1, Glenn Beck referred to Rush Limbaugh’s
remark: I hope he fails because we need the money. Even
with a flight to Copenhagen in 2 planes, jet fuel, green
house emissions, publicity, and other associated costs, the
failure of holding the Olympic Games in Chicago saved the
taxpayers a costly burden. No doubt, you and I were going
to foot the bill. That news died “like a candle in the wind”.
I wonder how General Stanley McChrystal felt, sitting
on Airforce One in a meeting prior to Obama’s flight
to Copenhagen? Was his request for 40,000 troups of
secondary importance to the world wide attention that
would be gained if attaining the olympics in Chicago?
McChrystal has had 3 short meetings with Obama since
he, McChrystal, was called as Coalition Commander in
Afghanistan. Until 10 days ago he had not been given
time by the president to discuss his strategy. Casualties
increase as delays drag on. Rahm Emmanuel stated before
the Asssociated Press last week that, Bush is to blame for
handing the administration the mess in Afghanistan. Are
“their” excuses uncreative or just plain tiresome!! Dick
Cheney found no humor in the remark claiming that a
“stategy plan” was given to the incoming president during
a transition meeting. Further, that the Obama team had
requested that it be kept quiet. The plan closely resembles
the plan now being considered, according to Cheney.
It seems that we have a president that can’t make a
decision. He’s caught in the middle and damned if he does
and damned if he doesn’t. In the meantime, soldiers die.
McChrystal is waiting for an answer from his commanderin-
chief, an answer that was to have been fulfilled months
The American public deserves the benefit of hearing
from the top U.S. military commander on the ground in
Afghanistan. This is especially true when the debate in
Washington over the war has become particularly muddled
and confused and statements from President Obama have,
again, proven contradictory. Americans want a decision-
”Provide the resources for our military men and women to
win or bring them home”!
Recently, President Obama rightly told a gathering of the
Veterans of Foreign Wars that the war in Afghanistan was
“fundamental to the defense of the American people.” Now
we read that he is considering scaling back in Afghanistan
and shifting the strategy from a focus on counter-insurgency
to counterterrorism.
Obama, implementing political strategy to appear decisive during
his campaign, claimed that he would send more troops. Mr. Obama
is ‘weenieing’ out.
Gen. McChrystal, who was tasked by the president to assess
the situation and provide his advice has to be frustrated, to say
the least. As casualties rise, Kerry and Obama mix politics with
rhetoric to front indecision while we watch our soldiers die.
