(Nicole:) Leave it to Fox News to try to spin the sad news that more coalition soldiers have died this month than in any other month since June 2008 into another "It's all Obama's fault" story.
Not that Obama doesn't need to accept some responsibility for the coalition's continued presence, don't get me wrong. But who put them there in the first place? Who never had a strategy there? I'm against our continued presence in Afghanistan, but I understand the Colin Powell/Pottery Barn mentality of "you broke it, you own it," most recently voiced by Tom "Friedman Unit" Friedman.
But is there anyone more disgusting to bring on than Col. Ralph Peters to discuss our troops' safety? The same man who suggested that the Taliban killing a captured American soldier would be the most expedient solution dares to advocate on behalf of the troops from President Obama? Reprehensible.
