Political opponents will very much want to call it "Obama's war", but it's a giant mess because Bush practically abandoned Afghanistan to focus on needlessly invading Iraq. Obama inherited a disaster.

Yes, Obama "inherited a disaster" as Fritzdawg says, but he OWNS it now and needs to man-up and do the right thing and stop whining about the past!

Pretty soon the far left won't be able to blame everything on our last real President and the Community Organizer in Chief's lack of executive experience will catch up with him.
Obama will make Jimmy Carter look like General Patton.
