Robert Gibbs declines to say whether Gen. McChrystal's job is safe in the wake of his controversial comments. Parties support Obama's decision to replace McChrystal By Perry Bacon Jr. Wednesday, June 23, 2010; 3:49 PM Members of both parties on Capitol Hill backed President Obama's decision to replace Stanley McChrystal after the general and his staff disparaged members of the president's national security team in an article in Rolling Stone magazine. Obama named Gen. David H. Petraeus to replace McChrystal as commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan. "I appreciate the bravery and service of General McChrystal, and I understand and respect the president's decision concerning General McChrystal," said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), one of the leading voices in Congress on defense issues and often a vocal critic of Obama. "I applaud the appointment of General Petraeus." Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, also signaled support. "The commander in chief has made it clear no one is bigger than the mission and nothing less than a unified effort in Afghanistan will get the job done," Kerry said. "His decision to return General Petraeus to the battlefield provides not just continuity in philosophy, but tested diplomatic skill." House Republican leader John Boehner (Ohio) said in a statement: "I have great respect for General McChrystal and the job he's done in Afghanistan and elsewhere in service of our country, but I respect the decision of our Commander-in-Chief. . . . General Petraeus has also dedicated his career to this country, and he deserves great credit for his leadership in helping to stabilize Iraq and bring it to a critical transition point this summer. I believe he is the right person take over this command." After the magazine article was made public Tuesday, members of both parties strongly criticized McChrystal, even as they said the decision to fire him was up to Obama. Several Democrats, including House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (Wis.), a critic of Obama's troop surge in Afghanistan, immediately called for the general to step down. Supporters of the increase in troops, such as McCain and Boehner, were quiet on whether Obama should keep McChrystal. But the parties don't agree on how or if the U.S. policy on Afghanistan should change with the new leadership. McCain suggested the entire Afghanistan team under Obama should be reevaluated and that the administration should consider bringing in Ryan Crocker, who served as U.S. ambassador to Iraq from 2007 to 2009 and worked with Petraeus. McCain said he would use Petraeus's confirmation hearings to press him and the administration to consider delaying a plan to start withdrawing troops in July 2011 if keeping current troop levels are necessary to stabilize the country. Some House Democrats, including Obey, disagree with a troop increase and want to start the drawdown earlier. Mobile Video Tapes Inc.

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Barack Obama, the US president, is due to receive the Nobel Peace Prize at a ceremony in Oslo - days after he ordered an escalation of US involvement in the war in Afghanistan. In making Obama the third sitting US President to win the award, the Norwegian Nobel Committee praised Obama's co-operative approach to global issues. But many critics say that Obama's resume is too thin to stand scrutiny with other Nobel peace laureates. And for many Afghans, Obama's strategy of even more troops does not fit into their vision of what will bring peace. From Kabul, Steve Chao reports.

President Obama has been busy....just not with the important issue the country is facing. He has chosen to focus on his domestic policy over the War on Terror. He has chosen to campaign for his Healthcare Program over providing for our troops in Afghanistan. He says he wants to have a clear strategy before he puts additional troops in harms way. Wouldn't you need to talk to your general in charge of the war more than once in 70 days to develop a strategy?

Shimon Peres praised US President Barack Obama's speech to the AIPAC annual policy conference, saying he had offered the maximum support for Israel that an American president could possibly offer. Peres said that Obama made clear that the "security of Israel is a national American interest." He added that it would be preposterous to expect Obama to give a timetable for possible military action against Iran. Immediately following the US president's AIPAC speech, Netanyahu, who himself arrived in Washington on Sunday ahead of his meeting with US President Barack Obama, praised the President for highlighting Israel's right to defend itself and for his comments that Iran must not be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon. Sources say he is likely to ask Obama for a "concrete plan" on Iran.

Headline: Obama: Dover visit 'Sober reminder' of war sacrifices Caption: President Barack Obama says his middle-of-the-night visit to greet the remains of fallen U.S. soldiers is "a sobering reminder" of the sacrifices of war. AP's Mark Smith reports. (Oct. 29) ((Dover video, FONT: Dover AFB, Delaware)) ((NAT SOUND - Tenhut)) In the early-morning darkness, the remains were carried in solemn dignity from a C-17 transport plane. ((Closeup Obama)) For President Barack Obama, here was the evidence of Afghanistan's cost -- 18 lives cut short in the deadliest month for U.S. troops since the war began. ((To Oval Singapore fotoop)) OBAMA SOT: It was a sobering reminder of the extroardinary sacrifices that our young men and women in uniform are engaging in every single day. (:13) ((Afghan file)) The casualties were from a disastrous helicopter crash and a roadside bombing ... ((Election file)) ... part of an upsurge in violence as Afghanistan prepares for a crucial presidential runoff. SHANKS SOT: 9:11:10 Obviously this has been a tough week for us, but we've expected tough weeks. FONT: Col. Wayne Shanks, U.S. military, Kabul (:06) ((Back to Dover)) The transfer of remains at Dover was a sombre scene ... ((File of Bush talking to troops)) ... Obama's predecessor never went to see, though he did meet often with families of the fallen. ((File Obama around Cabinet table, or still of Obama in Situation Room on Afghanistan)) For Obama, it came as he wrestles with a decision on how many MORE troops to send. ((McChrystal file, then U.S. troops)) Officials report ONE option being looked at is deploying something less than the 40,000 General Stanley McChrystal wants, but enough to cover key objectives -- an option ubbed "McChrystal Lite". SOT: Rick "Ozzie" Nelson/CSIS International Security Program ((Back to Dover)) Meantime, Obama tells reporters seeing the flag-draped transfer cases can't help but affect his thinking. OBAMA: "(It) is gonna bear on how I see these conflicts."

10.1.09: "So we have people over there who are at risk because they're not being guided by a good strategy that keeps them safe, that gets this thing turned around. And if the president chooses just to not do that, but stay there, then I think you'll see that kind of a thing happen, then you'll see those kinds of resignations. I think the commanders in the field or the commanders at CentCom might conclude, 'look, if you're not going to give me what I need to win this war, why would I stay here and try to manage this war if I don't think I can win it?'" Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Thursday.

(2 Dec 2009) European and other US allies will contribute more than five thousand more troops to the international force in Afghanistan, NATO's chief said Wednesday, declaring that it was "not just America's war." NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen spoke just hours after President Barack Obama announced the new deployment of 30-thousand fresh US troops to Afghanistan. "In 2010, the non-US members of this mission will send at least five-thousand more soldiers to this operation, and probably a few thousand on top of that," Fogh Rasmussen told reporters. This will be in addition to the 38-thousand troops allied nations have there now, he said. Obama said the intention would be for US troops to begin leaving Afghanistan 18 months following the buildup, if conditions were right. General Stanley McChrystal, the top US commander in Afghanistan, said NATO and US forces would hand over responsibility for securing the country to the Afghan security forces "as rapidly as conditions allow." Committing additional troops for Afghanistan is a tough sell for many allied governments at a time of economic crisis and shrinking defence budgets. Polls suggest that most Europeans oppose sending more soldiers into what many see as an unwinnable conflict. So far, only Britain, Poland, Slovakia, Turkey, Georgia, South Korea and tiny Montenegro have indicated a willingness to contribute more troops to the US-led force. But Fogh Rasmussen expressed confidence that more countries would come forward at a conference at NATO's military headquarters in Mons, Belgium, next Monday. He said other large contributors, such as France and Germany, would await the outcome of an international conference on Afghanistan in January before they committed to deploying any reinforcements. Fogh Rasmussen said the best way to overcome the widespread public opposition in Europe was by demonstrating progress in the war. This could be done by starting to transfer to Afghan control parts of the country where the security situation was good, he said. He said the alliance may hand over 10 to 15 districts to the Afghan authorities next year, the first step in a wider transfer of responsibility for security to the Kabul government. "Transition is not a code-word for exit strategy," he said. "We will stay as long as it takes to finish our job and our mission in Afghanistan will end when the Afghans are capable to secure and to run the country themselves," he added. NATO officials have said Washington expected the allies to provide up to 10-thousand troops over the next few months. Although Obama wants more combat troops from the allies, the prime emphasis will be on military instructors to train the expanding Afghan army, officials said. Other top priorities will include funding to pay for the training program, the new Afghan troops, and equipment.

http://www.platformforthefuture.com/main The Stench of Truth (334).mp4 McChrystal is relieved of duty and Petraeus is put in charge of Afghanistan. This is a huge distraction meant to make you think that it was poor decision making on McChrystal's part that is causing us to be losing the war in Afghanistan, and not the fact that we are getting our butts kicked there and should be done bleeding already. Petreaus is also positioning himself for a neo-con resurgence in 2012, and the policy of endless war. What the hell is going on in Arizona, US citizens told to stay out of parks because of drug gangs and criminals? Obama says he will NOT secure the border until he gets "comprehensive immigration reform" which is code for amnesty and any people that want to come may do so and the border disappears. The state should step in with the national guard but at least the militias are mobilizing and I endorse it and wish them the best in their deployment. Republicans are filibustering the extension of unemployment benefits as they worry about paying for it. WTF? Right in your face.

Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs giving an answer that mocks and insults Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl about his assertion that President Obama told him in a one-on-one meeting that he would not secure the border because "you guys" (Republicans) won't support Comprehensive Immigration Reform if we do. Gibbs has said Obama never made the statement, while Kyl has steadfastly stood by his account. Gibbbs tried to make out like Kyl had retreated from his assertion, and mocked Kyl for having three opinions on the matter. Actually, Kyl only said he meant that "the Left" is trying to hold border security hostage to CIR, not the President specifically. But Kyl has never retreated on Obama's statement that he won't secure the border because "you guys" won't support CIR.

His comments will follow a meeting with his national security team where he is expected to discuss U.S. options for responding to the deteriorating situation in Iraq. The administration has been weighing whether to press the Shiite prime minister in Baghdad to step down in a last-ditch effort to prevent disgruntled Sunnis from igniting a civil war. A U.S. official says Obama is expected to announce the deployment of about 100 Green Berets to Iraq to help train and advise the Iraqi forces. The official insisted on anonymity because this person was not authorized to publicly discuss the plan ahead of Obama's announcement. http://news.yahoo.com/us-weighs-pressing-iraq-leader-step-down-135921327.html http://www.wochit.com
