Permanent Afghanistan Occupation Planned
Obama lied like he always does. Permanent occupation is planned.
by Stephen Lendman
America came to stay. Accelerated withdrawal claims reflect subterfuge. Washington officials and media scoundrels don't explain. Misinformation and illusion substitute for reality.
Reuters headlined "Obama, Karzai accelerate end of US combat role in Afghanistan."
"Obama's determin(ed) to wind down a long, unpopular war."
The New York Times headlined 'Obama Accelerates Transition of Security to Afghans."
Obama is "eager to turn a page after more than a decade of war."
"(B)eginning this spring American forces (will) play only a supporting role in Afghanistan."
