We know from Haystack’s earlier post that Barack Obama’s “casualty count is nearly DOUBLE that of George Bush’s worst year as Commander in Chief.”We know that Barack Obama is dithering while our soldiers and sailors die in Afghanistan. Yesterday, Barack Obama fell back on his typical blame Bush.
At a news conference in the East Room with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India, Mr. Obama suggested that his approach would break from the policies he had inherited from the Bush administration and said that the goals would be to keep Al Qaeda from using the region to launch more attacks against the United States and to bring more stability to Afghanistan.“After eight years — some of those years in which we did not have, I think, either the resources or the strategy to get the job done — it is my intention to finish the job,” he said.
How exactly was George Bush not committed to stability in Afghanistan and stopping Al Qaeda from “using the region to launch more attacks against the United States.”Just because the guy says it, does not make it so. But there is something more troubling in all of this that is flying under the radar.In Obama’s “prosecution” of the war and dealing with military issues, he has decided to treat American soldiers and sailors worse than the terrorists.Fox News is reporting that Navy SEALs have captured the mastermind behind the 2004 Fallujah massacre that saw 4 Blackwater USA employees murdered and mutilated.What thanks is the Commander in Chief giving to these American heros? He is send them to court martial. Why? Because the terrorist got a bloody lip while detained.Seriously.In Barack Obama’s America terrorists are treated better than our soldiers and sailors.
