as one who has seen that this strategy was screwed up from the get go (bozo's from the previous admin) and we have lost the window of opportunity to win and have put this admin in a no win situation no matter what he does, do I sign to get us out now?Being that I was in the military when 9-11 happened and PRIOR to during other incidents that led up to this especially regarding Osama Bin Laden. I agree President Obama is caught yet again cleaning up Cheney's crap. Based on the information I was privy to Iraq should've never been invaded & Afghanistan was indeed attacked on 12 Sept 01 in an effort to I believe to kill Osama Bin Laden. When this was aired on FoxNewsChannel, it was only shown once and never again. There was never any U.S. intelligence that tied Iraq to Al Qaeda. On the contrary, it linked directly to groups in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Again this is based on things I've actually been privy to seen. Additionally, Bush backers are full of crap when they say that he had faulty intelligence. No before 9-11 even happened, Sec'y Powell and he himself said that they wanted to do something about the Iraq situation.
I think Afghanistan should've been the country that was initially attacked (for lack of a better descripton), which it was. But the previous administration spent so much time trying to get revenge for Saddam Hussein "Trying to kill my father!" (channelling Dave Chappelle). The entire focus on trying to capture Osama Bin Laden got lost in the mix as well as the purpose for any military action. Intentionally? Probably so. But I'm not going to sign that petition, its pointless.
