Marine Corp General: Obama "giving our enemy sustenance" (UPDATED)

I call it aiding and abetting… but he’s been doing that since his election:

The top U.S. Marine general said President Barack Obama’s announced July 2011 deadline to start withdrawing troops from Afghanistan had given “sustenance” to the Taliban.

“We know the president was talking to several audiences at the same time when he made his comments on July 2011,” Gen. James Conway told reporters on Tuesday. “In some ways, we think right now it’s probably giving our enemy sustenance….In fact, we’ve intercepted communications that say, ‘Hey, you know, we only have to hold out for so long.'”

I don’t see how our troops can be holding any confidence in the Commander-in-Chief… and Conway seems to be confirming it for us.

Complete weakness.  And the Marines are calling him on it.

UPDATE: Inexplicably, the original article has been taken down.  WSJ has replaced it with this however the gist of the General’s remarks remain intact.  With thanks to Alan.
