[VIDEO] Obama Will Be Furious … U.S. General Drops BOMBSHELL!

Even though President Obama saw the fallout from his premature withdrawal in Iraq, with the disaster that is ISIS/ISIL, and the poor civilians living in these terror zones, you would think that perhaps there was a lesson learned here. Not so, as he has placed himself right back in the same situation, different location- Afghanistan.

Retired Lt. Gen. Daniel Bolger, who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, told Newsmax TV’s “MidPoint” guest host Ric Blackwell on Wednesday that it would appear that Obama did not learn anything from Iraq and the subsequent rise of the Islamic State group at all.

U.S. Troops in Afghanistan will be cut in half by the end of 2015. There is a paltry 10,000 troops today, and U.S. Combat operations ended last week.
As the U.S. presence falls, the Taliban “will fill every gap that we leave on the battlefield,” Bolger told Blackwell. And why shouldn’t it? The Taliban is seizing on our weaknesses. They see and exposed side, and there they will jab the spear.

Obama may consider the American mission in Afghanistan accomplished, but “nobody’s clued the Taliban into this,” Bolger said.

“They’re in effective control of large parts of eastern and southern Afghanistan today, so I don’t know about that draw-down,” said the general and author of “Why We Lost: A General’s Inside Account of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.”

“To me it seems ill-considered, and I hope that our administration or our military will rethink it in light of what’s happened in Iraq,” he added. “We should’ve learned a lesson as to what happens if you pull out the bulk of your forces: The enemy will fill that gap.”

These interviews from Newsmax are extremely informative:

The general could not be more right- the Obama administration “should’ve learned a lesson” from Iraq. Clearly, they have not ever heard the saying “History repeats itself.” The mindset of the liberal is to keep attacking something from the same angle, and hoping for a different result. Any conservative can look and point to the history of liberal policies failing, failing again, and again……

Sad, discouraging news for those on the left.
