Recent chiz from 44's posse - like accidentally on purpose outing the CIA chief in Stan of Afghan and the recent unbelievably suspension of belief that 44's posse is like totally unwilling to face facts on the global war on terror
In 2012, the administration produced a draft National Intelligence Estimate that reached a surprising conclusion: al Qaeda was no longer a direct threat to America. A common theme is sounded: The threat from al Qaeda is rising, but the White House is looking to ratchet down the war against these Islamic extremists.And what the heck could be the strategic, logistical or tactical delights of announcing a run for the exits in Afghanistan?
As a result, intelligence gathered on these threats remain shrouded from the public and, in many cases, from senior government officials. And now Congress and the White House are beginning to consider modifying—and possibly revoking—the very authority to find, fix and finish those terrorists who pose the threat today.
This week, this internal struggle over the response to al Qaeda is reaching a crucial moment. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday will hold a nearly unprecedented hearing on the 2001 law that authorizes a long, global war against al Qaeda and its allies.
Under the scenario envisioned by 44, 9,800 troops would stay for a year, then that number would be reduced by half by the end of 2015.Zooming out of 44 and his posse for a sec - a more bigger quiz jumps up like a Harrier jet.
By the end of 2016, Great Satan's presence would be cut to a normal embassy presence
Why are Democrats so unserious about Nat'l Defense?
Rise of the Vulcans LOLS it's because - for whatever reasons - Americans elected more GOP administrations than Donkie admins. Fair enough - since 33 ushered in the New Clear Age - Americans have elected 36 years of GOP cats - compared to just 26 years of Dems.
Yet the real reason is about as subtle as wearing a thog to church:
If the Dems were really serious about National Defense - wouldn't their policies would be nigh indistinguable from the GOP's?
