McCain says Afghan withdrawal date a political decision

The Hill:

Sen. John McCain blasted President Barack Obama's stated goal of beginning troop withdrawal from Afghanistan in July 2011, saying Obama made a "political decision" not based on military strategy.

McCain (R-Ariz.), Obama's opponent in the 2008 presidential election, continued to criticize Obama's decision to include a timetable in his Afghanistan strategy, and he criticized military leaders who signed on to Obama's timetable strategy.

"It was purely a political decision," McCain said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "Not one based on facts on the ground, not one based on military strategy."

...
Actually that is the good news, because if it were based on military strategy, it would be one of the dumbest decisions of all time. It tells the enemy to just hang on a few months and we will go away. It gives the enemy hope when our military is trying to convince them that their cause is hopeless.

I think the withdrawal date was something for the anti war pukes in the Democrat party to keep them from opposing the military operation.
