Conservatives Praise Obama on Afghanistan Support

I think there are some on the right that want to see the President succeed especially when it comes to our military commitment to engage with Al-Quida and rebuild Afghanistan.

"We congratulate you on the leadership you demonstrated earlier this year when you decided to deploy approximately 21,000 additional troops and several thousand civilian experts as a part of a serious counterinsurgency campaign," write the signatories to the letter, whose organizers include the Foreign Policy Initiative's Jamie Fly, Iraq surge architect Fred Kagan, authors Robert Kagan and Max Boot, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, and former Coalition Provisional Authority spokesman Dan Senor.

The problem will be if Obama goes wobbly due to the far left attackers trying to cut and run from Afghanistan. If Afghanistan falls apart and becomes another terrorist enclave then it will be blamed on Obama and not on Bush. It is his war to win and hopefully he will be able to do it.
