Mattis Blames Obama for Afghanistan

United States Secretary of Defense James Mattis blamed former President Barack Obama for the U.S. losing the war in Afghanistan.

According to The Daily Caller, Mattis spoke in front of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to give Mattis the power to examine the number of troops in Afghanistan.

During his testimony, Mattis explained how former President Barack Obama’s decision to pull support for Afghan troops in 2014 allowed the Taliban to build up its power in the country. As a result, the war in Afghanistan will not end any time soon, and it’s up to Trump and his team to resolve the situation.

“I believe that we pulled out forces at a time, as you know, when the violence was lower, but we pulled them out on a timeline rather than consistent with the maturation of the government and the security forces,” Mattis said.

The Washington Examiner noted that Mattis blamed President Obama for his “misguided” decision.

“At one point, when we reduced our forces there, I believe in what was probably in hindsight a misguided application of our forces. We restricted them from using our air support, with some idea we would wean them off the need for it,” Mattis said.

    Why not blame Bush? His policies led to the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan as well as Al Queda; Mattis will have our troops in Afganistan for the next hundred years, like South Korea, Germany, etc. Mattis and Trump are only happy with a YUGE Army and a bankrupt Federal Government.
