Withdrawing Troops From Afghanistan

I wrote this before the President delivered his speech on the issue. Having read it, I see no reason to change my reply.

I was struck by the following line from the President’s speech: “Others would have America over-extended, confronting every evil that can be found.”

Like in Libya?

Of course, I trust that everyone has noted that with his precipitous withdrawal from Libya, Barack Obama is doing what he and others accused George W. Bush of doing: Not listening to his generals.
