Obama Says Afghanistan War Will Come to “Responsible End” in 2014 …(When Taliban Assumes Control)

Barack Obama and Aghanistan President Hamid Karzai held a press conference today at the White House.
Obama announced that the War in Afghanistan will come to a “responsible end” in 2014… when the Taliban terrorist group will assume control of the country.

Business Insider reported:

President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai said in a press conference today that they are accelerating the process of the transition in Afghanistan. Obama said that beginning this spring, U.S. troops would “move to a support role.”

“Starting this spring our troops will have a different mission,” Obama said. “Training, advising, assisting Afghan forces.” He later added that the focus would be on “targeted counter-terrorism missions against al-Qaeda and their affiliates.”

Currently, roughly 68,000 U.S. troops remain in Afghanistan. In meetings on Friday, the two leaders discussed various plans to continue the transition in Afghanistan, as well as the size of a potential residual force that could remain in the country after the official end of the war.

The Obama-Karzai meeting is the pair’s first since Obama’s re-election in November. It also comes amid a shakeup in Obama’s second-term defense team, as Obama has announced nominees to fill the Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State and CIA Director positions.

Two of those nominees — former Sen. Chuck Hagel for defense and Sen. John Kerry for state — could push for a faster withdrawal than what has been on the table.

“By the end of next year — 2014 — the transition will be complete,” Obama said. “This war will come to a responsible end.”

    With the crazy rules we force our military to follow over there plus the fact there is no definition of victory, I say the sooner our troops are out, the better.

    Obama: U.S. Has Fallen ‘Short of the Ideal’ in Afghanistan

    “So, you know, I think that, have we achieved everything that some might have imagined us achieving in the best of scenarios? Probably not. You know, there’s a human enterprise, and you know, you fall short of the ideal,” said Obama.

    The president went on to say that America has achieved some measure of success in Afghanistan, however. “Did we achieve our central goal? And have we been able, I think, to shape a strong relationship with a responsible Afghan government that is willing to cooperate with us to make sure that it is not a launching pad for future attacks against the United States? We have achieved that goal. We are in the process of achieving that goal. And for that, I think we have to thank our extraordinary military, intelligence and diplomatic teams, as well as the cooperation of the Afghan government and the Afghan people.”


    Whose fault is that Barack.

    Labor Secretary Hilda Solis Will Resign

    I’m told that Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis will step aside soon, making her the five member of the administration to leave the cabinet (or announce her deparature) since the election. Only two of these departures — Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner — are white and male. Lisa Jackson, who’s leaving the EPA, is African-American, and Solis was the first Hispanic woman to take charge of Labor.

    obama is a puzzle. Born and raised Muslim, favors Muslims, opens immigratin to the most radical Saudi Muslims, yet claims to have personally led the killing of Bin Laden and personally authorizing drone killings of Muslims. I am sure he has a plan, we just don’t know what it is.

  • bob

    Yeah because he wants to give the military’s money to illegals and lazy people to buy votes and support.

    Obama could soon be using carefully selected members of these former US Afghan forces in his new war against US gun owners.

  • Where’s the MF money Jon?

    This exposes a lie repeated often by Obama when he ran against Bush during the race against McCain. Obama kept saying “we took our eye off the ball” in Afghanistan when Bush went in to Iraq. The inference being that a genius such as himself could win Afghanistan if he was president. So he was elected. He quickly abandoned Iraq which left him free to focus on and win Afghanistan. He made no effort to do so. He let it languish. He let it rot. Today, he abandons it.
    Given what happened and the state of Afghanistan, U.S. troops should leave. But Obama, the liar who ran on the idea he could win Afghanistan, should not now be permitted to get away with saying that the war was either unwinnable or that he tried to win.
    Again, Obama is a proven liar and failure. It is a sad day for the once great nation.

    Hey Obama! The Taliban don’t believe in surrender like you do. Our troops will have died for what? The Taliban will come and wage war here because you’re too chicken-sh1t to fight them there without gloves.

    Obama is responsible for turning Afghanistan over to the ruthless Islamic Fascists in the Taliban. Remember that.
