SENATOR MCCAIN CRITICAL OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AFGHAN WITDRAWAL

U.S. Senator John McCain said President Obama erred when he announced plans to begin pulling troops out of Afghanistan some two years before they began.

His view was in Afghanistan that Obama’s 2009 pledge to begin a withdrawal this in 2011 added too much uncertainty to the situation and undermined the plan to win the loyalty and support of the Afghan population.

“The fact is there is no recommendation by any military person to have this early withdrawal, and it’s an unnecessary risk,” McCain stated on CNN.

McCain:

the idea of a negotiated settlement with the Taliban is premature, as proven by last week’s raid on a Kabul hotel by militants with ties to both the Taliban and Pakistan.

The senator told CNN that while he did not agree with Obama’s plans, he would not dismiss it as a political move and was confident the military would do its best to carry out its orders effectively.
