John Bolton said that now is the time to increase pressure on the Taliban and not withdraw troops as Obama and Jon Huntsman want to do. For Obama especially, Bolton believes this is nothing more than a political decision. He adds this:
I know as you said a moment ago that people question the cost. What’s the cost of not defending ourselves? This is not a choice between fighting in Afghanistan and rebuilding America. It’s a choice between a safe America and an unsafe America. What do you put the cost to that?
SideNote: Allen West will be on Hannity tonight giving the rebuttal to Obama’s Afghanistan withdrawal speech.
UPDATE: New York Times is reporting that our Community-Organizer-in-Chief will withdraw 10,000 troops this year and 20,000 by next summer, faster than Pentagon advised.
