While America successfully got rid of Barack Obama, unfortunately, his policies are still ruining the lives of millions of Americans. The middle class has been destroyed by Obama’s actions, but there’s still hope for change. At least now we have a President in office who is truly set on helping the American people.
Lately, it seems like a week doesn’t pass without us realizing more and more about the hidden policies that Obama put into place before dumping the burden on Trump. It became a trend for Obama to take credit for things that he had nothing to do with, while placing blame on others for things that he had done and didn’t want negative attention for. Perhaps the most egregious of these things was the troop drawdown from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The most sickening thing was watching Obama take credit for “bringing the troops home.” The truth is, he brought these soldiers home only to send them back to the Middle East a few years later.
Now that President Trump has decided to take actions in Afghanistan, it has been made known that the amount of troops in the region has been severely under-reported.
The Pentagon (under the direction of Secretary of Defense James Mattis) revealed that there are around 11,000 United States service members currently in Afghanistan.
Prior to this announcement, the Pentagon would only ever admit to there being 8,400 troops there under force management based on orders from the Obama administration.
Pentagon Chief Spokesperson Dana W. White and Joint Staff Director Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. emphasized the Obama-era policy affected combat readiness in Afghanistan and hid the truth from the American people.
“This way of doing business is over,” White stated indefinitely, continuing on, “We owe the American people as much transparency as possible.”
The Obama administration came to the 8,400 number in order to not disclose troops that were deployed on “temporary status,” even though they were there to support both the United States and NATO missions. Because of Obama’s cover-up, units were deployed without being completed just to keep numbers under the 8,400 mark, reports Banned Information.
