How Obama screwed up the war effort

Roger L. Simon:
Immediately after Donald Trump's Afghanistan speech, Lindsey Graham -- not always the president's biggest fan -- praised the address and noted Trump was smart to leave the actual direction of day-to-day conduct of warfare to those trained to do it: the generals. He contrasted Donald with Obama, whom Graham called a "bad general."

True enough, but it's worse. Obama wasn't just a bad general or even an atrocious one. Consciously and/or unconsciously, he was on the other side.

Sound exaggerated? Then ask yourself this -- why would a man as intelligent as Barack Obama 1. telegraph his intentions and pull-out date to the enemy, 2. not keep a decent military presence in Iraq, leaving it wide open to the nascent ISIS or similar religious maniacs and 3. give so much money to the Iranian mullahs in pursuit of a chimerical nuclear deal with a result that they are now all over the Middle East, killing as many people as possible and perpetuating the endless Syrian civil war (with literally millions of refugees), while testing ICBMs for the day when that (sort of) deal expires? And that's leaving out the red line, the complete punting on North Korea, etc.

I thought this was supposed to be the smartest guy in the room. Well, if you don't like America and want to see it neutered, maybe he is.
...
A media that hates Trump is unlikely to acknowledge how badly Obama screwed up and they still cling to their misleading characterization of the President and the events in Charlottesville.
