John McSame has consistently neglected Afghanistan while the Taliban have grown stronger. McSame has no policy plan for Afghanistan. He barely mentions Afghanistan in his National Security policy. "Look at his statements:
"...nobody in Afghanistan threatens the United States of America and nobody is running terrorist training camps to orchestrate attacks on the United States of America.” - John McCain [Fox News, “Hannity & Colmes,” 4/10/03]
“Afghanistan, we don’t read about anymore, because it’s succeeded. And by the way, there’s several reasons, including NATO participation and other reasons, why Afghanistan is doing as well as it is.” - John McCain [PBS, “The Charlie Rose Show,” 10/31/05]
Succeeded???? Doing as well as it is????
A Government report flatly states that an al Qaeda attack is now likely because the Bush Administration has not met US security goals to destroy the terrorist threat. A Pentagon report states the Taliban are flourishing in Afghanistan 7 years after 9/11. Coalition deaths reached an all-time high this year. Yet, believe it or not, there are actually people who are so delusional and in denial that they thank GW Bush for "winning two wars"!!
Hey guess what... John McSame is out of touch.Not only is McSame out of touch with Iraq, he thinks the war on terror is Afghanistan has "succeeded"
US Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen has warned time was running out to defeat an intensifying insurgency in Afghanistan and said he was "not convinced we're winning" in Afghanistan.
Army Maj. Gen. Robert Cone told those gathered for a memorial ceremony at Camp Eggers that terrorists have struck in London, Russia and Indonesia since hitting the U.S., “These attacks are reminders that the threat of terrorism is real and still a danger to the entire world,” he said.
You want to trust the security of America to an out of touch old fart and a dumb young jesus chick who can't correctly pronounce the word "Iraq"?
