With Bob Gates’ new book coming out, there are reports today that say he blasts President Obama for using an Afghanistan war strategy he knew would fail! “The President was outright convinced [his Afghanistan strategy] would fail.”
So he sent our young men and women to war, knowing some would die, even though he was convinced his strategy would fail. But then he is just uncomfortable with the word “victory!”
It fits the pattern. He also abandoned the “leave no man behind” promise when it came to defending Americans in Benghazi, Libya. These decisions are not about life and death for Mr. Obama, they are about his own political gains, goals and ambitions. It is disgusting to have such a man as Commander in Chief.
From the Official Obama Administration Scandals List way back on July 24th, 2009, our headline said:
President Obama Doesn’t Want “Victory” In Afghan War!!!
7/24/9 – NewsBusters reports: “You see, Barack Obama said on TV this week that “victory” isn’t his “goal” in Afghanistan. Why not? “I’m always worried about using the word ‘victory,’ because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur,” Obama told ABC News. It is telling that when Barack Obama pictures “victory” he doesn’t see in his head that famous photo of the U.S. Sailor kissing the pretty girl in Times Square on Victory Day. Instead, what is immediately conjured up in Obama’s mind is the bedraggled figure of a beaten Japanese Emperor groveling at the feet of U.S. military might.” — ConservativeAmerican.org adds: This one is over the top, nutzoid, impeachable stuff! He doesn’t want us to win a war we are in? He worries about using the word “Victory?” Is this the Obama you liberals voted for?
This was quickly followed by…
President Obama Messes Up History Again
7/24/9 – NewsBusters reports there was another problem with the Obama quote about victory: “Once again we see another example of Obama’s ignorance of history, even American history. In fact, Emperor Hirohito didn’t even sign the document that finalized the surrender of Japan to General MacArthur. That duty was performed by Japan’s Foreign Minister, Mamoru Shigemitsu, and one of its generals, Yoshijir Mumezu. In fact, we didn’t destroy Japan’s Emperor, rather we allowed him to continue on in a ceremonial role to allow the Japanese to feel as if they hadn’t been entirely crushed and that some of their traditions might live on. So, once again, Obama garbles history, disrespects his own country, and sets us up to be discounted as a viable force by foreign nations. Obama’s discounting of “victory” in Afghanistan is dangerous news for our troops. It signals a man that will not give our troops the support they need to win the war and come home with our pride and safety intact.”
It is a national humiliation that this man has abandoned his core duty to protect and defend the United States of America. He is a terrible Commander in Chief and should resign in disgrace.
