"Our troops have fought valiantly there, but Iraq has deprived them of the support they need — and deserve," Obama said. "As a result, parts of Afghanistan are falling into the hands of the Taliban, and a mix of terrorism, drugs and corruption threatens to overwhelm the country. As president, I would deploy at least two additional brigades to Afghanistan to re-enforce our counterterrorism operations and support NATO's efforts against the Taliban."Obama exceeded this promise with two troop surges. I don't know where these people are getting their information, but they better go elsewhere; Obama never promised to leave Afghanistan before this past Wednesday.
