Letter to Obama

December 4, 2009
Clifton, Virginia ---

President Barack Obama
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President,

In your speech at West Point, NY you announced that in eighteen months the troops will begin to come home. You set dates of when the troops will be leaving Afghanistan. I agree completely with what Senator McCain informed you, "The way that you win wars is to break the enemy's will, not to announce dates that you are leaving." When neither the Democrats nor the Republicans are on your side you are clearly making the wrong decision. You are going against what you promised in your campaign which are the reasons you were elected.
When you began your presidency in January there were 34,000 troops in Afghanistan, now there are 71,000. No one is pleased with your decision to announce the dates of withdrawal from the war, not democrats nor republicans. I suggest you start doing your job and lead the country towards a brighter future, not a future full of terrorist attacks
