Who are you going to believe, a Marine Corps General or that lying sack of shit in the White House?
With President Obama’s team gradually admitting al-Qaida’s role in the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Libya, the top U.S. general in Afghanistan announced that “Al-Qaida has come back.”
“Al-Qaida has come back, [and] is a resilient organization,” Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen told 60 Minutes last night, per the Armed Forces Press Service. “But they’re not here in large numbers. But al-Qaida doesn’t have to be anywhere in large numbers.” Allen is leader of the International Security Assistance Force.
His remark seems to undercut President Obama’s foreign policy boast from this weekend in Nevada. “And while a new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead,” the president said yesterday.
Despite his mushrooming Libya scandal he still can’t even lose the talking points. Sad.
