Obama lied when he campaigned on the fact that he would pull out of Afghanistan.
Obama received the votes from the people who thought that he would leave Afghanistan and received the votes from the people who paid him, with political campaign contributions, who knew that he would not leave Afghanistan.
So Obama received votes from BOTH sides. I am amazed that you can be for adding more troops and reducing the number of troops at the same time. Honest people will never have a chance.
See the article - Obama approves Afghanistan troop increase
There is no reason to believe Obama because Boeing was contributing to his campaigns. Just follow the money.
I guess Obama did not understand the issues of the Afghanistan War even though he was a United States Senator.
