Army veteran Rep. Allen West served in the United States Army for more than 20 years of active duty service. He was deployed several times to serve in Iraq.
On Wednesday, after Barack Obama spiked the football from Afghanistan, West posted this tweet comparing Obama to Neville Chamberlain.
The liberal media reported on West’s latest criticism of Obama.
In a tweet this morning, Congressman Allen West linked to an article detailing a suicide bombing in Kabul, the Afghan capital that President Barack Obama had just departed from, and… took the side of the Taliban.
Pres flew into Afghanistan at night for 7 hrs,” West wrote. “As sun came up, Taliban gave its response 2 his Chamberlain like actions.”
The Taliban response was to detonate two suicide bombs, killing at least seven and leaving the American Embassy on lockdown during an extended firefight, according to ABC News. And the Islamist militant group has at least one congressman who is content to blame the president on its behalf for the killing of schoolchildren.
“President Obama obviously does not understand the nature and motivating objectives of the Taliban. I will soon be traveling to the Afghanistan theater of operations to assess the mission and future,” West wrote on Facebook last night. “After already spending much time over there I can tell you there will never be a secure Afghanistan as long as the enemy has sanctuary in Pakistan. Nation building is not our objective, it is to destroy radical islamists whereever they exist.”
West has long used his experience in Iraq and Afghanistan as a campaign tactic, and in an op-ed in the Sun-Sentinel last month said that Obama “has never served his country in uniform, or risked his life to defend its freedoms and liberties on distant shores.”
