Brave New Foundation’s Political Director Derrick Crowe on Current TV’s The Bill Press Show, discusses President Obama’s latest speech on the Afghanistan pullout timeline (7 May 2012).
On the RETHINK Afghanistan website one can read that The Agonist declares that ‘[n]ew French President François Hollande is losing no time in keeping at least one of his campaign promises. He’ll announce France’s early exit from Afghanistan at the NATO summit in Chicago later this month. . . . Both NATO boss Anders Fogh Rasmussen and President Obama are expected to try to talk Hollande out of his earlier withdrawal, I suspect not because it would really hurt the mission there but because the optics look bad for the stick-the-coursers’.
