Reader comment on item: The Afghan War's Dismal End; Blame Bush Too

Submitted by Luke Lloyd (United States), May 30, 2014 at 10:43

I have always been taught that when I assume a position of authority everything that happens becomes my responsibility. Thus, while I agree Mr. Bush got the whole mess started with the support of the nation behind him at the time and made some mistakes along the way, Mr. Obama has had several years to correct the Bush mistakes and achieve a more meaningful and lasting solution without diminishing the stature of the US in the process. This he has failed to accomplish across the spectrum of his foreign policy and to the detriment of our interests as a nation.
