SHARE Dick Cheney: Obama’s decision on Afghanistan is ‘stupid’

President Barack Obama is a “very, very, weak president” who doesn’t understand America’s worldwide obligations, and the decision to pull all troops from Afghanistan by 2016 is “stupid,” according to former Vice President Dick Cheney.

During a segment on Fox News on Wednesday, Cheney said Obama is “maybe the weakest, certainly in my lifetime.”

He said one example of that is Obama’s decision to pull out of Afghanistan instead of negotiating to keep some troops there after 2016.That’s stupid, it’s unwise, and it will in fact just reinforce the notion that we’re weak, that we’ve got a leader who doesn’t understand U.S. obligations and commitments around the world and is not prepared to act on them, he said.

He went on to say that it’s disrespectufl of the military who served there to pull out, and Obama is “totally ignoring” the reason Afghanistan was invaded in the first place.

“It’s as though he wasn’t even around when 9/11 happened,” he said.
