Liz Cheney on Obama's Afghanistan Indecision: 'Completely Inexcusable' - Plus, Obama to Surrender Key Provinces to Taliban!

Liz Cheney on Aghanistan, from yesterday's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos":

"I think it’s just completely inexcusable that we’ve now had month after month after month of photo-op out of the White House and no decision. The president is very fond of saying, ‘Before I commit troops, I’m going to think very carefully about it.’ Somebody in the White House needs to remind him: He’s already committed troops. We’ve got American men and women in Afghanistan today, because we’ve got to prevent Afghanistan from again becoming a safe haven for Al Qaida. The cost of walking away, the cost of defeat, the cost of retreat is huge. They’re fighting there today, and they’re fighting without the kind of resources and reinforcements that he needs — that they need."
Also, at Weasel Zippers, "Afghan Source: Obama in Secret Negotiation With Taliban to Hand Over Southern Provinces in Return for Quiet ...", and Steve Schippert, "RapidRecon: Whispers of Surrender in Afghanistan?" (Via Memeorandum.)

Pakistan is pushing a negotiated handover, and given Pakistan's earlier indecision on defeating Taliban-Qaeda-Laskkar insurgents in North Waziristan (
with catastrophic results), this sounds like the worst possible outcome possible.

Plus, Wake Up America adds this:

Flashback, Obama- 2009:

"This is not a war of choice. This is a war of necessity," Obama told the annual Veterans of Foreign Wars conference -- cautioning that the insurgency would not be defeated overnight. "Those who attacked America on 9/11 are plotting to do so again. If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean an even larger safe haven from which Al Qaeda would plot to kill more Americans."
Is Obama actually prepared to surrender gained ground to the Taliban in secret agreements, while pretending to understand the danger they pose in public?
If true then Obama is far more dangerous to America than most originally thought.
