Obama has his ways of provoking public sentiment against follow-through that would allow success in Afghanistan.
First, prohibit effective interrogations.
Next, prohibit use of of air cover.
Next, embolden enemies by showing our weakness through pandering
Next, inform the world that we really don’t intend to “win.”
Next, require Miranda rights be given to terrorist captives.
Finally, ponder for months about the need for a troop increase.
