Obama, Afghanistan and US National Security

Obama Invokes 9/11 to Explain Afghanistan Troop Surge

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "After months of deliberations, President Barack Obama finally outlined his revised strategy for the Afghanistan War in a nationally televised address Tuesday night. The commander-in-chief repeatedly invoked 9/11, attempting to justify his plan to escalate the eight-year-old war, which calls for the rapid deployment of 30,000 additional US troops to the region by next summer."

Obama, Afghanistan and US National Security

Melvin A. Goodman, Truthout: "President Barack Obama announced last night that he will send 30,000 additional US soldiers and marines to Afghanistan over the next seven months and that additional resources will be used to train Afghan security forces and bolster the Afghan government. This is a seriously flawed policy. The troop deployment and the appropriations will have no impact on the insignificant al-Qaeda presence in Afghanistan; no significant success in controlling the growing Taliban presence; and will make only a limited contribution to nation-building in Afghanistan."

Now Obama’s got his own phony war

Obama sounded — in his speech at West Point tonight — almost like Ronald Reagan. President Obama said what the mission was — to tromp down on the Taliban and round up Al Qaeda — then promised the American people what true conservatives promise when sending American troops to war: when the mission is accomplished I’ll bring the troops home. Obama even gave a timetable for the mission and homecoming — troops back home by 2011 — as Reagan would have done. Which of course got President Obama all the attacks from the Neocons on Fox and CNN for promising precisely what Ronald Reagan would have. The problem is that the Afghanistan mission President Obama outlined makes no sense...
