Three Years of Indecision

David Kurtz, on Talking Points Memo highlights the indecision by the Bush Administration over the past three years on troop counts.

November 2006: “President Bush said Monday that he has made no decisions about altering the number of U.S. troops in Iraq, and he refused to discuss the pros and cons that would accompany such a decision.”

August 2005: President Bush said Thursday no decision has been made on increasing or decreasing U.S. troop levels in Iraq, saying that as “Iraqis stand up, we will stand down” and that only conditions on the ground will dictate when it is time for a reduction in U.S. forces.

April 2004: “Gen. John P. Abizaid, the senior commander in the Middle East, has asked for contingency plans for increasing the number of troops in Iraq. No decision has been made to supplement the 134,000 troops now there, and White House officials said it was unclear whether such a move would help the situation.”

November 2003: “The President is going to do what is most effective in Iraq, and he gets recommendations from his commanders on troop levels and what is needed. No decisions have been made about future troops levels,” said National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice.

Hmmm, do you think the enemy has reconfigured their strategy, including how many people they need? In fact, has not the enemy used our presence in Iraq to INCREASE their numbers?

How many more examples do you want, America, before you really see just how awful these leaders of ours are!
