Barack Obama Goes Golfing in Hawaii Terrorist Attack In Afghanistan Kills Six American Soldiers … Because It’s All About Him
SORRY AMERICA, BUT THE MAN JUST DOES NOT CARE …
Once again we are witness to Barack Obama’s lack of character, empathy any anything remotely presidential as Obama goes golfing on vacation after informed of a terror attack in Afghanistan that killed six American service members. Is there anything that would prevent this individual from going golfing? One has to wonder if Obama had been president during the Japanese Pearl Harbor sneak attack or 9-11 terror attacks whether this so-called president would have canceled his plans to go golfing? One would have to doubt it. But its the Democrat mantra when it comes to Americans killed under their watch … what difference does it make. It’s bad enough that Obama has acted like Air Force One is like an “Uber” ride, as the travel expenses are thru the roof, but could this man at least pretend like he cares about some one else more than himself?
Of course Obama would never stop his golf game and have to admit that Afghanistan is a failure, of his doing. The deaths of the six US servicemen was the largest loss of life of American troops in Afghanistan this year. The Taliban claim responsibility, you remember the same Taliban of which Obama swapped 5 Taliban terrorists for traitor Beau
Shhh … don’t tell anyone I am the greatest failure of a president, EVER!!!
President Obama is on vacation in Hawaii, where he was informed of a terrorist attack in Afghanistan that killed six American service members.
The attack was carried out by a suicide bomber on a motorcycle outside a U.S. military base, the largest loss of life of American troops in Afghanistan this year. The Taliban claim responsibility.
But the sobering news didn’t stop Obama from heading to the golf course, a tradition for the president as he enjoys the Hawaii climate during the holidays.
The president and three of his friends hit the golf course shortly after noon at the Mid-Pacific Country Club.
While Obama was on the course, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest released a statement in response to the attacks. “We express our deepest condolences to the families of the six U.S. service members killed and to all of those injured in today’s Taliban attack near Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and their loved ones,” the statement read, adding that the United States condemned the “cowardly attack.”
Unreal, the United States gets a statement from the White House press secretary of condolences to the family and that our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and their loved ones, as Obama is playing a sand wedge from the bunker? HUH? Oh yeah, he so cares, his actions are all we need to see to realize he just doesn’t give a $hit. Check out the pics at Breitbart.com where Obama can be seen making it all about him as he chips it in on the 18th hole. What a poor excuse for a president, a commander in Chief and a man.
Sorry, this president lost me when he showed his true lack of character and decided to make fun of developmentally challenged Special Olympic athletes and made a joke of them. What a dirt-bag.
Comparing his poor bowling score … “It was like Special Olympics or something”
EPIC FAIL: Barack Obama Flip-Flops on Troop Drawdown in Afghanistan as the Taliban & Al-Qaeda Gain Strength
A COMPLETE ADMISSION THAT THE OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY IN AFGHANISTAN HAS BEEN A DISASTER.
Barack Obama kicks the can down the road for the nest president to deal with his failed policies …
Imagine that, Barack Hussein Obama is flip-flopping on his troop drawdown in Afghanistan. After having pulled out a majority of US forces in Afghanistan prematurely and all but losing any gains that had been previously made, Obama now finds Afghanistan in complete turmoil. Day by day gains are made by the terrorist Islamists Al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Obama did not win any war in Afghanistan by pulling all the US troops out, he abandoned the war. Now he has a major headache and PR embarrassment on his hands. This almost reminds me of the Obamacare provisions that really stick it to Americans and businesses but do not take affect until after Obama is out of office. How convenient. Obama is just looking to run out the clock on his presidency and not have Afghanistan fall to the Taliban and terrorists before that takes place. Oh, and let’s not forget Obama’s JV terrorist group, ISIS.
With pressure building on the White House to slow or completely halt the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, senior officials said that President Obama appears increasingly willing to keep a force there large enough to carry on the hunt for Al Qaeda and Islamic State militants.
The insurgents are now spread through more of Afghanistan than at any point since 2001, according to the United Nations, and last month they seized the city of Kunduz with only a few hundred fighters. At the same time, Al Qaeda operatives are still finding havens in the mountains of Afghanistan, and the Islamic State has gained a toehold by recruiting disaffected Taliban, opening a treacherous new chapter in the war.
President Barack Obama will announce Thursday that U.S. forces will remain in Afghanistan at their current levels throughout much of 2016, marking yet another delay in the administration’s plans for completing its withdrawal from the 14-year conflict.
The decision to maintain 9,800 troops in Afghanistan until nearly the end of Obama’s time in office comes after months of discussions with Afghanistan’s president, Ashraf Ghani, and the nation’s CEO, Abdullah Abdullah, senior administration officials said Wednesday night. Obama also consulted with U.S. military commanders on the ground in Afghanistan as well as his entire national security team, officials added.
According to the new White House plan, the number of U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan would drop to 5,500 by early 2017, as Obama prepares to leave office. At that point, U.S. forces would be based in the Afghan capital of Kabul, as well as in military installations in Bagram, Jalalabad and Kandahar.
MORE BAD NEWS FROM AFGHANISTAN …
As reported at NBC News, a C-130 transport plane crashed while taking off in Afghanistan killing 13 people abord the plane, including 6 American service men. The terrible incident took place shortly after midnight local time (3:19 p.m. ET) at Jalalabad airfield. The Taliban has claimed that they shot the plane out of the sky; however, U.S. Air Force Maj. Tony Wickman, spokesman for the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing dismissed the claim, saying that “it is with high confidence that we can say it does not appear that enemy fire was involved.” Well, it didn’t just crash on its own … what happened?
Six American service members were among 13 people killed early Friday when a U.S. C-130 transport plane crashed while taking off in Afghanistan, a U.S. military official said.
The incident occurred shortly after midnight local time (3:19 p.m. ET) at Jalalabad airfield, coalition spokesman U.S. Army Col. Brian Tribus said.
Six of the dead were U.S. service members that were the crew of the aircraft. The other victims were five civilian contractors, who were passengers, and two Afghan civilians who were killed on the ground, Tribus said.
U.S. Air Force Maj. Tony Wickman, spokesman for the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing, told The Associated Press the the Super Hercules aircraft crashed “shortly after take-off wholly within the airfield.”
The civilian contractors were working with “Resolute Support,” the NATO-led mission to train and advise Afghan security forces. It follows the military mission in Afghanistan after combat operations ended at the end of 2014.
A cause for the crash has not been determined.
THANKS FOR NOTHING BARACK OBAMA … YOU ARE A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FAILURE …
The Taliban has recaptured the northern city of Kunduz in Afghanistan. As CNN reports, the loss of the major city of Kunduz to the Taliban is a stunning reversal for the Afghan government, deepening worries about the ability of its security forces to take the fight to the Islamic militants. This is the first time a Taliban has taken a city in Afghanistan since 2001. You can thank Barack Hussein Obama for leaving the Afghans in the lurch and creating the vacuum where all gains by the US military under GWB have all but been lost under Obama. This is a major, major loss. What a colossal failure, or is this what Obama wanted all along?
Taliban insurgents launched a massive assault on the northern city of Kunduz Monday, seizing a courthouse, a hospital and other government buildings, and freeing hundreds of inmates from a prison, despite a series of battles with government forces.
Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi told The Associated Press that “Kunduz city has collapsed into the hands of the Taliban.”
“Security forces in Kunduz were prepared for an attack, but not one of this size, and not one that was coordinated in 10 different locations at the same time,” Sediqqi said.
“With capturing of police compound and governor’s office in Kunduz, the whole province fell to our hands,” the Taliban’s spokesman said Monday on his Twitter account.
The Taliban used social media to claim the “conquest” of Kunduz and reassure residents that the extremist group — responsible for the vast majority of nearly 5,000 civilian casualties in the first half of this year, according to the United Nations — came in peace.
