White House blames Bush for Afghanistan turmoil
by Charlie Spiering Commentary Staff Writer
February 27, 2012 2:12pm

White House Press secretary Jay Carney today reminded reporters that prior to President Obama's term in office, the Bush administration was responsible for the tumultuous lengthy engagement in Afghanistan.

"The president made clear when he was a candidate for this office and when he took this office, that unfortunately prior to his taking office, because of the focus on Iraq, and the U.S. efforts there, that the original war, if you will, in Afghanistan had been neglected, the strategy there was unclear, and that it was not properly resourced," said Carney, adding that the U.S. goals in Afghanistan would be met with President Obama's "clear eyed" policy.

2 U.S. Officers were shot and killed last week inside the Interior Ministry building in Kabul, and 9 people were killed today as a suicide bomber targeted a military airport.

When asked any military response to the attacks, Carney said that the incidents were being investigated by the Afghan government and the International Security Assistance Force.

Didn't Obama say something to the fact that Afghanistan was the real war, and we needed to shift focus from Iraq to where it mattered, the real war on terror???/

"It's time to refocus our attention on the war we have to win in Afghanistan."

It's just the same old broken democratic record, take credit for things that look good and blame Bush for everything else.

There's no question that Iraq was a distraction from the real problem, which was in Afghanistan. Had Bush & co kept their eye on the ball there we might have been further along. You guys crack me up.
