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!
