Why leave any behind? We shouldn't have been in Afghan in the first place. Right idea to target terrorists, wrong country to attack.

Same with Iraq. Never should have been there. Those few remaining troops should also be withdrawn 100%.

I do tip my hat to Obama for withdrawing from Afghan. And I commend him for staying the course on Bush policy to withdraw from Iraq in 2011 - I just won't credit or applaud him for sticking to Bush policy as though it was his [Obama] policy, which Democrats have all credited Obama. Obama was not POTUS in 2007 when the agreement was signed for a withdrawal by EOY 2011.

Obama the phony, strikes again. It's a shame he didn't strike in Benghazi when we needed him.
He' great at doing Bush's ideas but when it comes for Home Boy to act on his own, as in Benghazi, he's an impotent coward.

CORRECT! He ALLOWED those Americans to be murdered. Navy ships were sitting in the Med off the coast of Libya, and could have had Marines boots-on-the-ground in minutes and saved those lives. Instead he chose to sit in his big leather chair and watch a live video stream from a drone overhead.
