Obama Lies About Ending the War in Afghanistan

“We are bringing our troops home from Afghanistan.  And I’ve set a timetable.  We will have them all out of there by 2014,” Obama said at a rally back in September, only to have his own press secretary call him a liar.

At the VP Debate, Biden repeated Obama’s lie. “”We are leaving in 2014, period.”

Except we’re not. Under Obama and Biden’s definition of leaving, we are going to have almost as many soldiers in Afghanistan after 2014… as there were during the war under the Bush Administration.

Obama is going to have more soldiers in Afghanistan in 2015 than Bush did in 2006.

Obama isn’t pulling out of Afghanistan. He’s pulling the troops from his failed surge out of Afghanistan. It’s a lie and he needs to be called on it.

As discussed in my pamphlet, The Great Betrayal, Obama’s promise to leave Iraq early was a scam. It was accomplished by giving the mission a different name and renaming the soldiers still there as “advisers”.

2014 in Afghanistan will not mean the withdrawal of all ISAF forces from Afghanistan. What it will mean is that those troops, tens of thousands of them, will now be described as advisers to the Afghan security forces. And yes Obama will go on lying and claiming that the war will end in 2014.

Some U.S. military officials have said the plan is to keep 25,000 American troops in Afghanistan past 2014, but Marc Grossman, the State Department’s special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan insisted that there is no number yet and the 25,000 figure quoted in reports is speculative.

25,000 is a plausible number, but it might be understated. When Obama “withdrew from Iraq”, 50,000 US troops remained behind as “advisers”.

But let’s look at what 25,000 really means. In the spring of 2008, under Bush, US troops levels in Afghanistan hit a high of 32,000. In 2006, there were only 20,400. A number like 25,000 can only seem small in relation to the huge numbers of troops during Obama’s failed surge.

Obama’s “withdrawal” from Afghanistan will leave more troops in the country that were there for most of Bush’s time in office. That’s a funny definition of ending a war.

Under Obama’s definition of ending a war, moving a large number of troops into an existing conflict and then pulling them out, while leaving roughly the same amount of troops that were there under your predecessor counts as ending a war.

Obama has been repeatedly attacking Romney over Afghanistan in increasingly shameless ways.

“You get to decide what the future of the war in Afghanistan is. Last week, did you notice Governor Romney did not say a word about our troops who are in harms way over there,” Obama told a crowd at a high school in Toledo. “Because of my plan, 33,000 of them will have come home by the end of this month.”

What Obama failed to mention is that the 33,000 troops were only sent to Afghanistan because of his plan… a plan that failed.

Governor Romney had nothing to say about Afghanistan last week,” Obama said Sunday. “Governor Romney doesn’t have a timetable. I think he’s wrong. That’s what’s at stake in this election.”

Obama’s timetable for Afghanistan is a lie. Just as his timetable for Iraq was a lie.

Romney needs to push back against Obama’s lies by demanding a timetable for the full and complete withdrawal of all US forces, besides those tasked with protecting diplomatic facilities.

    Booth Romney and Obama are Liars and are being financed by the same people who's interest it is to keep america at war because of the profits made. Our only choice is a democratic people's party, not bound to big bussiness. We can vot for either one, nothing will change except with Romney, the Collapse will come a lot sooner.

      Yes, it's all about money. And who in your fantastic mind are these decision makers I wonder?

      "Our only choice is a democratic people's party, not bound to big bussiness."

      Perhaps you can show us the way?

      "We can vot for either one, nothing will change except with Romney, the Collapse will come a lot sooner."

      The "BARACK OBAMA DOCTRINE" –

      according to Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow is as follows: If President Obama says something, no matter how utterly STUPID in Sounds to anyone with half a Brain, it MUST be the TRUTH, simply because Barack is the President and everybody knows that SOCIALIST DICTATORS like Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro "NEVER EVER" tell Lies!

    Interesting. Apparently Greenfield can't quite make up his mind whether to attack Obama from the right or from the left as he does here. Either that or his MPD is peaking.

    NASA Rover Finds Mars' Soil Similar to Hawaii's

    has anyone heard about this, it was a headline on newsmax.com. i am rushing this letter out, i demand that an investigation be held AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. the white house-negro is not trying to cover-up his kenyan birth by claiming that he was born in hawaii, he is trying to hide the fact that he is a space-alien. regarding obama's grandmother who has stated that obama was born in kenya, regarding the literary agency "acton & dystel" which produced the booklet written in 1992 where OBAMA HIMSELF claims to have been born in kenya, i believe these are ploys to hide that fact that obama is from mars.

    a spaceman is not allowed to be the president of the united states. i had looked the other way regarding obama's foreign birthplace when i thought that he was just another monkey from africa, but i cannot be remiss about this. this is serious and needs to be investigated.

    the placation known as "a woman can do anything a man can do" is one thing, i can't see how anyone could take it seriously when gender-based college sports teams and gender-based military requirements are no secret to anyone, but we've gone too far if we're going to placate an alien to let him think he can do anything an earthling can do.

    regarding placation, let me continue. a gay guy yelling at a straight man and spewing the words, "i'm more man than you'll ever be," well that is as ridiculous as the "a woman can do anything a man can do" line – simply because neither a woman nor a gay guy is a man. women spurt blood and lay eggs, women spout milk, women were designed for motherhood – female olympians do not compete with men because they don't stand a chance. they are the lesser and they cannot do "anything a man can do". gay guys marvel at masculinity like they're a bunch of gender-deficient masculivoids, they have no esteem or love for themselves as a legitimate member of their own gender – they are the lesser and that's why they search for the man of their dreams in somebody ELSE. gay guys have no right to say "i'm more man than you'll ever be" to a man who is all the man he needs, just as an alien has no right to try to justify being "more earthling than he'll ever be," whether the "he" is mitt romney or any legitimate earthling. BARACK OBAMA IS NOT AN EARTHLING. barack obama is a LIAR and he's proven that.
    http://obamalies.net/list-of-lies

    i DEMAND that an investigation commence regarding obama's true planet of birth. i DEMAND that both his grandmother and his literary agency "acton & dystel" be investigated for claiming that obama was born in kenya, because that is obviously a ruse to shield people from the truth that THERE IS AN ALIEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

    The Point of No Return for Obama

    Obama is about to play defense, for the next three years.sadobama_1

    Obama is facing the abyss. It’s that moment when a president’s plans are overwhelmed by his problems, and he’s relegated to playing defense for the rest of his White House term. Obama’s agenda already lingers near death. His poll numbers have slipped to new lows. His speeches are full of alibis and accusations.

    Obama hasn’t reached the point of no return, but he’s very close. His biggest problem is the collapse of Obamacare on its launching pad as the entire country watched. And there’s worse trouble ahead. More likely than not, Obamacare will be the dominant issue in the final three-plus years of his presidency. From that, there’s no recovery.

    Years on defense—impotent years—have beset even the strongest of presidents. Jimmy Carter’s presidency was hardly a powerhouse. Still, it had one shining moment, when the Camp David peace accord between Israel and Egypt was signed in September 1978. What clout Carter had vanished after the “malaise” speech in July 1979. It made him a target of ridicule.

    Impeachment in 1998 forced President Clinton into retreat. His popularity remained high, but he abandoned an agenda that included entitlement reform. Even an unexpected Democratic victory in the midterm elections in his second term couldn’t revive his presidency.Popular Posts: •188 Articles of Impeachment against Obama
