The Petraeus Bait and Switch

In interviews in recent weeks, Gen. David Petraeus has been taking a line on what will happen in mid-2011 that challenges President Barack Obama’s intention to begin a troop withdrawal from Afghanistan by that date. This new Petraeus line is the culmination of a brazen bait-and-switch maneuver on the war by the most powerful military commander in modern U.S. history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One cannot blame Petraeus for taking advantage of what is essentially President Obama's catastrophic lack of imagination regarding Afghanistan.

As our President, Obama is also commander in chief; as such, he must fully shoulder the responsibility for what has happened in Afghanistan under his watch.
