Republican Chairman Steele is an Idiot

Michael Steele, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, called the war in Afghanistan, a "war of Obama's choosing."

If my memory serves me, we are about nine years removed from one of the most heinous acts of terrorism every conceived, 9/11. The man responsible for that act was being protected by the Taliban regime that was the government of Afghanistan at the time. There is practically no country in the world that had any issues with the United States engaging in that war. It was justifiable, and in fact, many countries were more than willing to help the United States fight that war.

If any war was a "war of choosing," it was the Iraq war at the choosing of President Bush. That was the war the United Stated did not need to be pursuing. Had the United States fully committed itself to the Afghan war with the sole intention of finding Osama Bin Laden, then I think we would have been out Afghanistan years ago and Bin Laden would be dead today.

  1. I can't believe Steele hasn't been forced to resign yet.
