Just another campaign promise...

.... just another campaign promise he didn't deliver on. One of many all of them he didn't deliver on.

At least he kept Bush's time table on Iraq.

He's probably afraid that Taliban will take over when we leave - as they surely will - and doesn't want that to happen on his watch. So he's playing a sort of holding action. Just enough drones and training of Afghans to keep it going. Just another politician doing political things for political reasons.

I say GET OUT now. Pack up and let them have their little sand box. They don't deserve what we tried to give them.
