Here’s our Commander in Chief speaking of the situation in Afghanistan while he was running for office: “We’ve got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there.”
This post is not about the cognitive dissonance of a man who, now that he used that lie to become president, is refusing to act to send more troops to Afghanistan to take off that “enormous pressure.” It’s about his jaundiced view of the troops he hoped then to, and now does, lead.
At Flopping Aces, WordSmith has a detailed photo essay about the troops of whom Barack Obama spoke. It’s shocking. If I were you, I’d get out a handkerchief, because the images there may bring tears to your eyes. Also, after you’ve checked out Flopping Aces, you may feel compelled to go here and tell the troops exactly what you think of them. I’ve already done so, and will do so again and again. The feelings I have now deserve to be vented.
