Prairie Recommends: Frank Rich on Obama’s Afghan Decision
Will Obama bow to the will of the General reading his McChrystal ball?
Or will he find common ground with conservative columnist George Will?
Frank Rich deconstructs the options facing President Obama going forward in–or out of–Afghanistan. And traces the parallels to the decision facing another President, an earlier time, about Vietnam. What’s that ol’ saw about lessons of history again?
And in Rich’s comparison, conspiracy theorists can now add a new posit to bloody November 22. A military sharpshooter eliminating the obstacle to their drumbeat for expanded war in SE Asia?
But this time, the vice president would not bend to their sturm und drang. So they’re back to pressuring the president to yield to their will. Bush would. Will Obama?
