The Afghanistan Move

01Dec09

The Obama abyss.

The chief architect of a bill to increase taxes to pay for the Afghanistan war said he didn’t believe adding troops would yield much benefit.

“The problem is you can have the best policy in the world but if you don’t have the tools to implement it it isn’t worth a bean bag,”
Rep. David Obey (D-Wisc.), the House Appropriations Committee chairman, told CNN on Sunday.

President Barack Obama is expected to announce on Tuesday he will add 30,000 troops to the war effort in Afghanistan to stem the rise of Taliban and to pursue al-Qaeda.
