You Lie, Part 2

When he was running for the presidency Barack Obama repeatedly said he would reinforce the troops in Afghanistan.

Now that General Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, has asked for more troops, why is Obama not sending them?

CNS lists several instances where the campaigning Obama said he wanted to treat Afghanistan as the primary front in the war on terror. So, what happened?

On Jan. 14 of this year, a week before being sworn in as president, Obama told Katie Couric that the United States “took our eye off the ball,” and that “our real focus has to be on Afghanistan, the border regions between Afghanistan and Pakistan . . . [t]hat’s my number one priority as president of the United States.”

Acorn, Afghanistan, what else has Barack Obama lied about?
